England National Coach Hope Powell has named her squad for the Euro 2013 qualifier against Holland at the end of October.
Twenty of the 22-strong squad helped England collect four points against Serbia and Slovenia last month, while Eniola Aluko is welcomed back into the fold after her law studies saw the forward miss the aforementioned double header, and midfielder Jade Moore has received her first call up to the senior team.
"I monitored Jade closely throughout the season," said Hope of the Birmingham youngster. "She competed in midfield against some senior internationals and did really well. 'I know she has performed for the Under-19s and the Under-23s in the past and this gives me an opportunity to have a look at her in a senior team environment.
"It will be a challenge for her, but hopefully she can cope with it and I hope the experience gives her an added desire to make it a more regular occurrence.
"Holland are in a far better place than they have been in recent years," continued Hope, "and their 6-0 win over Serbia will have boosted their confidence. I am expecting a very tough fixture, especially because the game will be played on a 3G pitch.
"That is an added pressure and we will need to prepare properly for that surface. This is an important game because we dropped two points against Serbia and we will be going out for the win, but we know we will need to be at our best."
Faye White and Kelly Smith are still unavailable through injury.
