England will travel to China later this month for an international friendly tournament.
Mark Sampson's side will be based in YongChuan, Chongqing where they will face China and Australia in the CFA International Women's Football Tournament. It is the Lionesses' first tournament since finishing third in the FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada this summer.
Dates and times of the matches will be confirmed by the Chinese Football Association. England will travel to China on Monday 19th October. It will be the third tournament England have participated in this year, with their 2015 international calendar opening with the Cyprus Cup in March where they beat Canada 1-0 in the Final.
Sampson said: "To continue the development of our international programme we need to play matches against top ten nations as often as possible. To do so in a tournament format is a fantastic opportunity to tick those boxes for us.
"It also provides the squad with the chance to experience a different continent and the unique football cultures that come with it, and it is a great opportunity for us to continue to grow as a group.
"Travelling to China at this stage of our domestic season will also offer some new players the opportunity to experience an international senior tournament and lay down a marker for a regular place in the squad."
England's next home game is against Bosnia & Herzegovina on Sunday 29th November (3.30pm kick off) as part of their UEFA Women's 2017 Euro qualifying campaign.
