Manchester City's Ladies will be well represented at the end of November during the upcoming international break, as seven first-team players have been called up by boss Mark Sampson ahead of their two fixtures against Germany and Bosnia.

Before then, they face Germany on Thursday next week - which is set to be televised on the BBC with kick-off scheduled for a 5pm start UK time.

The 23-player squad, is as follows:

Other players on international duty with Euro qualifiers ahead

Elsewhere across the UK, three other first-team players will be representing their countries across the coming week.

Jennifer Beattie and new signing Jane Ross have both been called up to the Scotland squad - they face Macedonia on the 29th of November, having picked up nine out of a possible nine points from their three qualifiers thus far.

Midfielder Natasha Harding has been named in Wales' squad for their European qualifier. She'll be hoping for a good result against Kazakhstan on Thursday afternoon, as the Dragons are currently winless after two qualifying fixtures.
