Stanway and Roebuck made their senior international debuts in November, in a 3-0 win over Austria, with the forward marking her first appearance with a goal.

Captain Houghton then celebrated a milestone, earning her 100th international cap in the friendly clash with Sweden at Rotherham's New York City Stadium.

Meanwhile, three City stars will also don the blue of Scotland in their upcoming friendly encounters with Norway and Iceland in La Manga.

Jen Beattie, Claire Emslie and Caroline Weir have all received call-ups to Shelley Kerr's side.

Elsewhere, Lauren Hemp has also earned a recall to the England Under-21s squad, having missed out on November's training camp due to injury.
