England Women's interim head coach Mo Marley has named a 26-player squad for this month's 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup qualifying double header.
Keira Walsh and Leah Williamson have been handed their first senior call-ups. The midfield duo have both featured for Marley in the England Women's Under-19s set-up and have progressed through the age groups. They were part of the U23s squad that won the Nordic Tournament in May.
Meanwhile, Manchester City goalkeeper Karen Bardsley returns from injury but Reading FC Women midfielder Jade Moore misses out following ankle surgery.
England will face Bosnia & Herzegovina at Walsall's Banks's Stadium on Friday 24th November (7.05pm). They then travel to Colchester where they will play Kazakhstan at the Weston Homes Community Stadium on Tuesday 28th November (7.05pm). Tickets, priced £1 for children and £10 for adults, are still available for both matches via TheFA.com/Tickets.
England started their qualifying campaign with a comprehensive 6-0 win against Russia in September.
Mo Marley said: "These matches are hugely important to the World Cup qualifying campaign and we will be looking to get two good results, and finish 2017 in strong fashion.
"I know Keira and Leah well from the Under-19s set up and they are both talented young players with lots of potential and playing well for their clubs, and I am pleased to welcome them into the senior squad.
"We are looking forward to ending the year with two home games. We are expecting good crowds at both matches and will be going out to put on two excellent performances for our supporters."
