Wales manager Jayne Ludlow has named a 22-player squad to face Northern Ireland in the fourth match of her side's UEFA Women Euro 2021 qualification campaign.
Ludlow welcomes back captain Sophie Ingle who was forced to withdraw from last month's 1-0 win against Belarus due to a hip injury. However, one of the squad's most experienced players, Natasha Harding, will be unavailable for the match in Belfast after picking up an injury while playing for Reading FC Women.
Midfielder Chloe Williams and forward Maria Francis-Jones will be looking to earn their first senior caps after going through the age group ranks.
Williams was part of the squad that faced Portugal last November while Francis-Jones, from Llandiloes, was part of the Wales side which competed in last month's #WU17EURO qualifying round. The Under-17s are currently awaiting confirmation of whether their third place finish in their qualifying group was enough to book a place in the elite round of the competition for the second year running.
Wales and Northern Ireland have already met in the group stage, where a last minute equaliser for the visitors meant the spoils were shared in a 2-2 draw at Rodney Parade. Wales are still unbeaten in the group with two wins and a draw while Northern Ireland have played one game less, including the Wales draw and a defeat to group leaders Norway.
