Anna Signeul has named her squad for the 2017 Cyprus Cup as Scotland ramp up their preparations for UEFA Euro 2017.
The Scots have played in the tournament in nine out of the last 10 years, finishing fourth on two occasions in 2011 and 2014.
Scotland will play against New Zealand, Korea Republic and Austria in Group B, with their final placing determining who they play on the final day.
The group of players is similar to the one that was selected for two matches against Denmark in Cyprus last month where Scotland drew on both occasions.
Joelle Murray was forced to pull out of those two matches but the Hibernian captain is named this time around. Gemma Fay picked up an injury in the first Denmark game and is not included in the squad while she fights back to full fitness.
24-year-old uncapped goalkeeper Lee Alexander is included, fresh from returning to Glasgow City from Swedish side Mallbackens. She is the only uncapped player amongst the 21 named in the squad.
Jane Ross notched in the first game against Denmark, taking her goal tally to 47 from 98 caps and it is possible for her to pass both the 100 cap and 50 goal marks during the course of the tournament. Arsenal left back Emma Mitchell is also approaching the half-century landmark.
Scotland open up their matches against New Zealand on Wednesday 1st March, before taking on Korea Republic two days later and their final group game sees them play Austria on 6th March. The final, placing match will be played on Wednesday 8th March, their opponents will be decided once all the group matches have been played.
