Wales manager Jayne Ludlow has named a 24-player squad to face Estonia for the women's side's first match in Wrexham since 2012.
The squad was announced in a special video by girls involved in the FAW Trust's Huddle scheme in north Wales.
Winger Natasha Harding - who scored a hat-trick against Israel on the last occasion that Wales played at Wrexham - returns to the squad after missing the goalless draw against Northern Ireland in November with a knee injury. However, Jessica Fishlock remains in the USA to continue her recovery and defender Gemma Evans misses out through injury. The versatile Elise Hughes is also unavailable as she continues recovery for her ACL injury.
Ludlow has opted for a mix of youth and experience for the match on Friday 6th March (7pm kick off). Six players under the age of 20 will look to develop and learn from playing alongside the likes of Sophie Ingle, who is set to win her 99th cap, Loren Dykes and Angharad James.
The Estonia match is key preparation for Ludlow's side ahead of the second half of the UEFA Women's EURO 2021 qualification campaign. Wales currently sit second in Group C with two key home matches against the Faroe Islands and Norway in April.
A return to north Wales for the national side is part of the FAW's aims to grow the women's and girls' game across the country. Rhiannon Roberts and Elise Hughes are two players from the area who have been a key part of the current qualification campaign. Tickets, priced £5 adults and £2 for U16s and 65+, can be purchased via the FAW website (faw.cymru).
