Ellen White, Toni Duggan, Natasha Dowie and Anita Asante have all been recalled to the England squad for the match against China on Thursday 9th April.
Mark Sampson's side will entertain China at Manchester City's new Academy Stadium in their final home match before this summer's FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada.
White last played for her country against Montenegro in April 2014, before an anterior cruciate ligament injury forced her to sit out the rest of the year. The Notts County striker could make her 50th England appearance against China, as could her club-mate Jess Clarke.
Asante's last international appearance came against France in last year's Cyprus Cup final, while Dowie came off the bench against Montenegro in September and Duggan was part of the historic match against Germany at Wembley in November.
Sampson said: "This match is the last time we get the group together before we select the final 23-player squad for the World Cup.
"It's a crucial camp and gives the players the chance to really stake a claim for a seat on the plane to Canada.
"We have a number of players in good form so I am expecting training to be intense and the element of competition within the group to be at its maximum.
"With a month to go until we meet up for the tournament, getting as much as we can out of every day is vital to our preparation."
The Lionesses will be without captain Steph Houghton due to a knee problem, while recent centurion Karen Carney also misses out through injury.
Tickets for the China match are on sale now, priced £5 for adults and £2.50 for children. A family ticket (two adults and two children) is £10 and group booking discounts apply. Tickets are available via www.MCFC.co.uk/Tickets or in person at the Manchester City box office at Etihad Stadium.
