Wales manager Jayne Ludlow has named nine uncapped players for the squad to face Portugal in a double header on the 10th and 13th of November.
Olivia Clarke, Emma Gibbon, Cori Williams, Kelly Isaac, Emma Jones, Grace Horrell, Ella Powell, Chloe Williams and Tamsyn Sibanda are all in with a chance of making their senior debuts as part of a squad of 26, as Wales play their first matches since their final FIFA Women's World Cup qualifier against England back in August. Cardiff City Ladies are heavily represented with no less than eight members of the squad.
Ludlow will be resting experienced players Jessica Fishlock and Loren Dykes to allow other players within a camp environment and competitive game fixtures, while Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Megan Wynne is back in the squad after winning her last Wales cap against Scotland in 2013. Meanwhile, Reading FC Women defender Rachel Rowe will be missing out as she recovers from injury.
In an innovative scheme, the squad was announced by children from all over Wales which were inspired as the side narrowly missed out on a place in the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup.
During that campaign, Wales went seven games without conceding a goal as well as picking up some famous results, beating Russia 3-0 at home and a goalless draw against England away at Southampton.
Both matches will now be fully capped friendly matches after the original announcement of a B international and an A international. The first match in the double header will be played on Saturday 10th November at the Municipal Stadium, Rio Maior (6pm kick off). The teams then meet again three days later on Tuesday 13th November at the Municipal Stadium in Cova De Piedade (3pm).
