Wales squad to face Scotland
 Women's Football News 17 Jul 2014
Jarmo Matikainen has named his Wales squad for the forthcoming friendly game with Scotland. 
The match will be played at Palmerston Park, Dumfries, on Sunday 3rd August 2014, kick off 1pm. The game will be a 'warm-up' for the vital FIFA Women's World Cup qualifier against England at Cardiff City Stadium a few weeks later on Thursday 21st August (kick off 7.05pm). A win from that game would leave Wales with the chance of winning the group in the final match, that takes place in the Ukraine in September. England could still take the top spot if they win their final match against Montenegro.
Some of the best runners-up sides from the European groups will also come together for play-off games in the Autumn for one additional place in the finals in Canada in the summer of 2015.
For the match in Scotland, Wales captain, Jessica Fishlock, has not been selected initially, in order to assess whether she should travel the long round trip from Seattle in the USA twice in a short space of time. Hayley Ladd is also missing after sustaining a leg injury against Turkey at Haverfordwest in June.
There are two uncapped players in the squad of 19: defenders Rhian Cleverly and Alys Hinchcliffe, both of Bristol Academy. If selected for the game, stalwart defender Sophie Ingle will win her 50th Welsh cap, becoming the 12th female player to achieve this.
Michelle Green is currently on 92 senior caps - equalling Neville Southall, the former Everton goalkeeper - as the most capped player of all time for Wales. If she features against Scotland, she will proudly be able to claim to be 'out on her own' as the most capped player in the association's history. Michelle made her debut in the 2001-02 season and has been a regular in the team and squads ever since. Her dedication and commitment has been faultless and she is a great example to the other squad members around her.
