Olympic hockey champion Alex Danson will make her 100th appearance for Great Britain during next month's five-match Test series against Argentina.

The GB captain, 32, will lead a relatively inexperienced team which features eight debutants.

Head coach Danny Kerry picked the squad to give a "developmental opportunity of playing a world-leading team".

Rio 2016 gold medallists Maddie Hinch and Lily Owsley will not travel to Rosario between 10-17 February.

Full squad: Alex Danson (C), Giselle Ansley, Sophie Bray, Nicola Cochrane, Amy Costello, Emily Defroand, Sarah Haycroft, Jo Hunter, Hannah Martin, Shona McCallin, Hollie Pearne-Webb, Ellie Rayer, Sarah Robertson, Zoe Shipperley, Rose Thomas, Anna Toman, Susannah Townsend, Laura Unsworth, Ellie Watton, Nicola White.
