And Marley has named a largely unchanged squad to that which beat Russia 6-0 at Tranmere Rovers’ Prenton Park last month, in England’s opening 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifier.
Karen Bardsley and Ellen White miss out through injury while Laura Bassett will not join up with the squad as she will be in Australia with her club Canberra United.
The match will be live on the BBC Red Button with coverage starting at 7.50pm BST.
Marley said: “The squad put in an excellent performance against Russia last month and we want to keep that momentum going against France.
“We know France are an excellent side and it will be a tough challenge for us. It’s a good opportunity for me to see the players in action against top opposition, especially considering our two important home World Cup qualifiers next month.
