Mark Sampson has selected his England squad that will travel to USA later this week to take part in the prestigious SheBelieves Cup.
The Lionesses will face the three highest ranked teams in the world, USA, Germany and France, at the tournament which is now in its second year.
The 23-player squad will fly to Philadelphia on Saturday [25th February] where they take on France in their opening game at Talen Energy Stadium on Wednesday 1st March (9pm GMT KO).
England will then travel to New Jersey to play the hosts, World Cup holders USA at the Red Bull Arena on Saturday 4th March (10pm GMT KO). Their final game is against European and Olympic champions Germany on Tuesday 7th March at RFK Stadium in Washington D.C. (9pm GMT KO).
The tournament is a key part of England's preparations for this summer's Euros, which takes place in Netherlands.
Sampson said: "The SheBelieves Cup is a real opportunity to experience tournament format football against the best teams in the world.
"Tournament football is unique. It's about finding a way to win and we will go into the SheBelieves Cup with that mindset.
"Last year we came close but didn't get over the line, this year we need to put that right and find our way to win. We are improving with every camp and we go to the US in the best shape we have been as a group.
"We'll be coming up against some really tough opposition but winning this tournament has to be our objective and would be a real feather in our cap going into the Euros."
