What is the team news?

Captain Steph Houghton will be making no appearance in Austria as she prepares to make her 100th cap in Rotherham on Saturday.

Neville said: “Steph won’t be involved on Thursday. She wants to play but we told her no.”

“I wanted to make Sunday a special day because she [Houghton] has earned it.

“She deserves it so she will be rested and it can be a celebration of her England international career.

“She actually doesn’t want it to be about her because she is so humble and she wanted to make her 100th cap in Austria. But we have almost banned her from playing. It is very doubtful she will even be on the bench.”

Fran Kirby and Keira Walsh have been sent home from the camp due to injury with Karen Carney and Mel Lawley replacing them.

Toni Duggan will captain the side in Houghton’s absence.
