Mark Sampson has kept faith with his England squad that finished runners-up at the Cyprus Cup for their key World Cup qualification game against Montenegro next month.
Arsenal defender Casey Stoney returns to the squad after recovering from a foot operation, in one of only two new additions. She replaces team mate Jordan Nobbs who has a lower back injury. In the other addition to the squad, Birmingham City Ladies goalkeeper Mary Earps replaces Lizzie Durack.
Sampson's side will take on Montenegro on Saturday 5th April at Brighton's AMEX Community Stadium in his first FIFA Women's World Cup 2015 qualifier since being appointed head coach in December.
England are currently in top spot in Group 6, with 100 per cent record after four games, under interim head coach Brent Hills. England's match against Montenegro will also be broadcast live on BBC 2.
Mark Sampson said: "It is great for us to get back together so soon after our time in Cyprus, which was a camp we took many positives from.
"There is a real sense of optimism within the group about the journey we have set out on, we have made a positive start which we are keen to build on. The match in Brighton signifies the first competitive outing for this new England team and as importantly the first opportunity for our supporters to share the experience with the players.
"We are determined to engage with our supporters for the first time while continuing the early progress we have made with a brave and ambitious performance against Montenegro."
Tickets for the game are on sale now priced at £5 for adults and £2.50 for children and concessions. A family ticket is available at £10 (two adults, two children). Tickets are available at: http://www.seagulls.talent-sport.co.uk/PagesPublic/ProductBrowse/productHome.aspx
