England head coach Mark Sampson has selected his 23-player squad for this month's international match against the Netherlands.
The Lionesses will face the Euro 2017 hosts in Tilburg on Tuesday 29th November (6pm GMT KO) in their final game of 2016. The match will be played at the same venue, Koning Willem II Stadion, where England will face Portugal at next summer's Euros (27th July). England will also play Scotland in Utrecht (19th July) and Spain in Breda (23rd July) in Group D.
Arsenal striker Jodie Taylor returns to the squad following injury while Liverpool captain Gemma Bonner is also included. Casey Stoney and Fran Kirby have been left out of the squad due to injury, along with long term absentees Alex Greenwood, Ellen White and Carly Telford.
Sampson said: "This match provides us with the perfect opportunity to not only test ourselves against an excellent opponent who have genuine ambitions as hosts of winning the Euros, but to also experience the culture and environment that we'll be working in next summer.
"It's a unique chance to play at one of the stadiums where we will play in July and now that we know who we face at the Euros, the intensity and focus in our group will sharpen.
"Though it is the end of our season, there will be no excuses from us and every player knows that we need to work hard as this match will be a challenge of our mentality as well as ability.
"We are nine games unbeaten and will be fighting to make that ten, but we are expecting a tough game against a fellow contender for the Euros."
