PHIL Neville has named an experienced squad for England's vital World Cup qualifying double-header against Wales and Kazakhstan.

Victory against group leaders Wales at Rodney Parade in Newport on August 31 would assure England of a place at the 2019 finals in France.

But a defeat would mean the play-offs would offer the only possible route, leading to Neville leaning on his experienced campaigners.

Everton defender Gabby George is the only woman yet to pick up a senior cap while captain Steph Houghton is fit to be called up after returning from a knee injury.

"We are looking forward to the Wales game and know we have to be ready for the challenge," said Neville after naming his squad.

"They will be determined to make the most of home advantage and their crowd will be expecting a victory.

"I know my players are up for it and will be fully focused on the job they have to do."

The likes of Karen Bardsley, Lucy Bronze, Fran Kirby and Jodie Taylor are also in the 23-woman squad - as is Alex Greenwood, who plays for the newly-formed Manchester United Women's team and is back available following suspension.
