Mo Marley has named her England Under-19 squad to take on the continent's elite next month.
Her side will travel to Turkey to compete in the UEFA Under-19 Championship Finals and the Head Coach has kept faith with 14 of the 18 players that helped propel them to this stage.
There is also room for former Under-17 internationals Aoife Mannion, Paige Williams, Abbey-Leigh Stringer and the prolific Sunderland forward Beth Mead, who receives her first call-up to the Under-19 squad.
England received a bye to the second, and final, round of qualifiers due to their impressive recent record in this competition. These qualifiers were held on home soil in March and April and the hosts topped the group with victories over Finland (1-0), Wales (6-0) and Austria (1-0).
Semi finalists in 2002 and 2003, the Three Lions then reached three Finals in four seasons, finishing runners-up in 2007 and 2010 either side of their historic 2009 triumph, where they defeated Sweden in the Belarus showpiece courtesy of goals from Toni Duggan and Jordan Nobbs.
England have been drawn in Group B alongside Sweden (who they will face on 2 July), Spain (5 July) and Serbia (8 July). Group A comprises Turkey, Portugal, Denmark and Romania and the top two sides in each group will make it through to the semi finals.
"Our group is particularly strong, because three of the teams have actually won the European Championship in the past," said Mo. "I don't think you can take anything for granted, but I think that gives teams that little extra advantage."
