Assistant Marieanne Spacey and coach Lee Kendall led the camp in his absence but Sampson has arrived in Tilburg for England's final friendly of 2016.

The Koning Willem II Stadion is the venue for England's final Euro 2017 group match with Portugal next summer.

"That familiarisation will be so important," said Spacey.

"Even down to the logistical things such as finding out the distance from the hotel to the ground."

Arsenal striker Jodie Taylor is in the 23-woman squad after struggling with injury this season, but injured captain Casey Stoney, who has 129 caps, and Fran Kirby are left out.

Goalkeepers: Karen Bardsley (Manchester City), Siobhan Chamberlain (Liverpool), Mary Earps (Reading)

Defenders: Laura Bassett (Notts County), Gemma Bonner (Liverpool), Lucy Bronze (Manchester City), Gilly Flaherty (Chelsea), Steph Houghton (Manchester City), Jo Potter (Notts County), Alex Scott (Arsenal), Demi Stokes (Manchester City)

Midfielders: Isobel Christiansen (Manchester City), Jade Moore (Notts County), Jordan Nobbs (Arsenal), Jill Scott (Manchester City), Fara Williams (Arsenal)

Forwards: Karen Carney (Chelsea), Danielle Carter (Arsenal), Rachel Daly (Houston Dash), Gemma Davison (Chelsea), Toni Duggan (Manchester City), Nikita Parris (Manchester City), Jodie Taylor (Arsenal)
