Mark Sampson has handed Millie Bright her first England senior call up for the UEFA Women's Euro 2017 qualifying double header against Estonia and Belgium.
The 23-year-old has been in fine form for Chelsea over the last couple of seasons and is no stranger to the senior set up, having trained with the squad at St George's Park a number of times.
Claire Rafferty and Danielle Carter have been recalled to the fold. Rafferty's last match for England was the 0-0 draw with France in March, while Carter scored a hat-trick against Estonia on her debut last September.
The Lionesses have already made it to next summer's Euro finals, sealing qualification with a 7-0 win in Serbia in June. England, who are two points clear of Belgium at the top of Group Seven, will entertain Estonia at Meadow Lane on Thursday 15th September before completing their qualifying campaign in Leuven five days later.
Sampson said: "We may have qualified for the Euros but our focus for our last two qualifiers is absolute.
"We are a top team and that means we must top our group. We know we face two challenging matches but our focus is two wins to go to Netherlands as group winners. I know this group of players will fight hard to get the two wins we want.
"We are delighted to properly welcome Millie into the group. Her progress over the last 18 months has been pleasing.
"She now joins us with experience of Champions League football and a high number of WSL appearances for both Doncaster and Chelsea. And she showed during the recent Next Gen camp she is ready for a senior call up."
Tickets for the Estonia match are priced £7.50 for adults and £3.50 for children. A family ticket is available, via phone booking only, priced £15 (two adults and two children). Tickets can be bought via TheFA.com/Tickets or by calling (0115) 955 7210.
