Jordan Nobbs has been recalled to Phil Neville's 20-player squad for friendlies against Brazil and Portugal.

The Arsenal midfielder was ruled out of this summer's World Cup after suffering a serious knee injury in November but returned to action in the Womens Super League earlier this month.

Coach Phil Neville said: "It will be great to be back in front of our fans again after two away matches.

"I know playing in Middlesbrough will mean passionate support and the big crowd we're expecting shows just how much the team connected with the public in the summer."

23,000 tickets have already been sold for the game on October 5.

The England Squad to play Brazil and Portugal is as follows:

Millie Bright, Lucy Bronze, Rachel Daly, Mary Earps, Beth England, Alex Greenwood, Steph Houghton, Fran Kirby, Aoife Mannion, Abbie McManus, Beth Mead, Jordan Nobbs, Nikita Parris, Ellie Roebuck, Jill Scott, Demi Stokes, Jodie Taylor, Carly Telford, Keira Walsh, Leah Williamson.
