Two Stevenage Boro players are in the latest England squad.
Strikers George Boyd and Steve Morison are in National Game XI coach Paul Fairclough's 22-man squad for the European Challenge Trophy decider with Holland.
Boro boss Mark Stimson said: "George has obviously played for England before but it's the first time in the squad for Steve.
"It's a deserved call-up for the pair and hopefully it won't be a distraction. Let's hope they're back in the goals this weekend."
Also included in the squad is Dagenham and Redbridge's Craig Mackail-Smith, a former Arlesey Town winger.
The squad will be trimmed to 16 for the game on Wednesday, November 29, at Burton Albion's Pirelli Stadium (7.45pm ko).
This result will determine the winner of the inaugural 'non- league' European title.
England, with victories over Italy and Belgium already, need just a point to secure the trophy. However, Holland will snatch the prize if they beat the hosts.
Admission will be £5, and £1 for concessions, with tickets available on the gate.
Tickets can be bought in advance from the Burton Albion ticket office on 08701 900060.
Full England squad: Lewis Chalmers (Altrincham), Ryan Austin (Burton Albion), Michael Morrison (Cambridge United), Scott Griffiths (Dagenham and Redbridge), Craig Mackail-Smith (Dagenham & Redbridge), Daniel Woodards (Exeter City), Billy Jones (Exeter City), Lance Cronin (Gravesend and Northfleet), Michael Kightly (Grays Athletic), Dennis Oli (Grays Athletic), Adam Quinn (Halifax Town), Danny Carlton (Morecambe), Craig Stanley (Morecambe), Adam Yates (Morecambe), Michael Carr (Northwich Victoria), Kieran Charnock (Northwich Victoria), Steve Morison (Stevenage Boro), George Boyd (Stevenage Boro), Arran Lee-Barrett (Weymouth) Shwan Jalal (Woking), Guiseppe Sole (Woking), Clayton Donaldson (York City).
