England’s women welcome back double Olympic medal-winning goalkeeper Maddie Hinch, as well as Tokyo bronze medallist Anna Toman.

Hinch will be playing her first international match since the last Olympics; with both her and Toman having been playing their club hockey in the Netherlands this season. Miriam Pritchard and Olivia Hamilton miss out on the squad on this occasion.
