England’s Lionesses next match is against Serbia at Wycombe Wanderers’ Adams Park on Saturday 4 June (5.30pm BST KO).  The squad will then travel to Stara Pazova for the away tie, on Tuesday 7 June (4pm BST KO).

Added to the list of forwards are Rachel Daly (Houston Dash), Nikita Parris (pictured above) (Manchester City) and Jodie Taylor who is recently recovered from injury and who is now an Arsenal player.

Full squad:

Goalkeepers: Karen Bardsley (Manchester City), Siobhan Chamberlain (Liverpool), Carly Telford (Notts County).
