West Ham’s Grace Fisk has been included in a youthful Lionesses squad for the SheBelieves Cup in the USA next month.
England Women will face 2019 World Cup winners USA, Japan and Spain in the four-team round-robin tournament between March 5-11.
Arsenal midfielder Jordan Nobbs has also been included after missing the World Cup over the summer, but club team-mate Beth Mead is omitted due to an injury suffered during the 3-2 win over Liverpool on Thursday.
Manchester United goalkeeper Mary Earps also misses out on the 23-player squad, while Lionesses boss Phil Neville – who is looking ahead to Euro 2021 on home soil – hands call-ups to two uncapped players in 22-year-old defender Fisk and Sandy MacIver of Everton.
Chelsea striker Beth England also makes the cut after scoring 18 goals in 20 appearances at club level this term.
Neville said: “We are focusing on developing the incredible young talent we have.”
On Mead’s absence, he added: “It is a blow with Beth. I think Beth has been in the best form of her career this season.
“I knew as soon as she went down, the clash of knees, something wasn’t right.”
England won the invitational SheBelievesCup for the first time in 2019 with victory over Japan in Tampa.
