Jarmo Matikainen has named his Wales squad to compete in the Algarve Cup tournament from next week.
Wales will compete in Group C and take on hosts Portugal in their opening game on 29th February, before playing Republic of Ireland two days later and finishing their group matches against Hungary on 5th March. There will then be a positional match against one of the teams from the other groups, which takes place on 7th March.
This is the eleventh time that Wales have been invited to play in the competition and they will hope to emulate last year's fine achievement of winning their group which also contained Portugal, Romania and Chile, before going on to lose to China in their positional match.
Watford winger Sarah Wiltshire, who was top scorer in the Premier League National Division last season, has received her first call up as has Cardiff City's Kayleigh Green whilst Natasha Harding and Katie Sherwood (nee Daley) have returned to the squad.
Three members of the squad - Jessica Fishlock, Gwennan Harries and Katie Sherwood - could pass the 50-cap mark during the course of the tournament.
