Goalkeepers Lizzie Durack and Carly Telford have been called up to the England squad for next week's Cyprus Cup campaign.
The duo replace Rachel Brown-Finnis and Karen Bardsley who have been forced to pull out through injury.
Everton's Brown-Finnis has been ruled out with a groin and back complaint while new Manchester City signing Bardsley has a stress fracture in her foot.
Durack (pictured), now at Harvard University, was a key member of Mo Marley's Under-19 team that finished runners-up at last season's European Championship finals. This is her first call up to the senior squad. Notts County goalkeeper Telford last represented her country against France at the Cyprus Cup in 2012.
England won this competition last season and they begin their title defence against Italy on Wednesday 5th March. They will then take on Finland on 7th March and Canada on 10th March.
This will be new Head Coach Mark Sampson's first opportunity to assess his squad in a tournament environment. His first home game in charge is a World Cup qualifier against Montenegro at Brighton & Hove Albion's Amex Stadium on Saturday 5th April.
