Wales manager Jarmo Matikainen has named his squad for the UEFA Women's Championship qualifying group match away to Israel.
The match will be played in Nes Ziona on Sunday 20th November (3pm). It will be the fourth group match for Wales who lost their opening two games against Republic of Ireland and France but they will go into the game high on confidence following their encouraging 2-2 draw against Scotland, in which Amie Lea and Helen Lander scored, and they will see this as a good opportunity to record their first win against the nation which is currently bottom of the group.
Matikainen has picked a largely youthful squad which includes the likes of Hannah Keryakoplis, Hayley Ladd and Angharad James who all made their senior debuts during the recent double header with France and Scotland.
However they will be without Jessica Fishlock who misses the game through suspension after picking up her second yellow card against Scotland. Instead there are first time call ups for Lauren Price of Cardiff City, Josie Green of Manchester City and Ellis Parsons, formerly of Bristol Academy but now at East Tennesse State University, whilst there are recalls for Megan Wynne and Laura May Walkley.
The match will be Wales' last senior international of the year and also the last to be played in Group Four in 2011. Wales are next in competitive action in April when they play away to France.
