Karen Carney could earn her 100th England cap in the friendly against Germany next week after being named in Mark Sampson's 23-player squad.

The Birmingham City captain has scored 23 times since making her international debut against Italy in 2005.

"Karen is a great person and incredible football talent; in my eyes one of the best in the world," said Sampson.

A record attendance of 55,000 is expected for the national team's first match at Wembley.

Eight of the Team GB side that beat Brazil at Wembley in the 2012 Olympics are in the squad to face the European champions.

Casey Stoney, whose partner Megan Harris gave birth to twins last week, is excluded on fitness grounds.

The game marks the beginning of preparations for the FIFA Women's World Cup, which takes place in Canada next summer. England qualified with 10 wins out of 10.
