Peter Sturgess has picked his squad as England target Euro Futsal progress later this month.
The Three Lions Head Coach takes a group of 14 players to Lithuania for the Preliminary Qualifying Round, as the Three Lions aim to progress beyond this stage for the first time.
England will face the host nation and Cyprus in Kaunas, with only one nation from the three progressing to the Main Round, which has already been pre-drawn and sees Ukraine, Turkey and Slovenia lying in wait for the winners.
And England head east on the back of some encouraging performances in the last few months, so confidence will be high amongst the squad.
Victories over Denmark and Malta and draws against higher-ranked nations such as Georgia and Norway in the last few weeks have given England a real boost.
Sturgess takes an experienced squad to the qualifiers, with all of the players having featured in the aforementioned games in December and January.
Meanwhile, England will be back in action on home soil in February
with Turkey visiting the Sporthouse venue in Barking for two friendly matches.
