The Matildas head into a four day camp today ahead of their departure for the Cyprus Cup next week.

The 22 player squad excludes players from Westfield W-League grand finalists Melbourne Victory and Brisbane Roar due to their final preparations.

The Australian team selected for the Cyprus Cup will go into camp on Monday ahead of their departure on Wednesday.

The camp is chance for head coach Hesterine de Reus to see run the rule over several returning long time national team members and to assess the potential of a number of well performing W-League players.

The camp sees the return of long time Matildas goalkeeper and former captain Melissa Barbieri with the Victorian earning a recall after a strong season with Adelaide United.  Sydney FC and World Cup striker Leena Khamis also returns after an ACL kept her out of the 2012/13 season with her strong season with the Sky Blues rewarded. While Sydney FC goalkeeper Casey Dumont returns to the national set up again after returning strongly from a long term injury.

Sydney FC defender Amy Harrison was also rewarded for a strong season at left full back while Newcastle Jets standouts Hannah Brewer (defender), Rhali Dobson (striker) and Jets captain Gema Simon have earned their first call ups despite the club's troubles this season.

Australia are in Group B of the 12-nation annual event alongside World Cup semi-finalists France, Scotland and de Reus' country of birth, the Netherlands.

All teams will play group matches on March 5, 7 and 10, with play-offs for final positions held on March 12.
