Gemma names first Wales squad
 Women's Football Wales International News - 31 Mar 2021
A 26-player squad has been selected for Gemma Grainger's first matches in charge of Wales as her side take on Canada and Denmark on Friday 9th and Tuesday 13th April.
With Grainger less than a fortnight into the role, she has relied on coaching staff involved in February's training camp to select the squad as she looks to prepare her side against two of the world's top ranked sides.
Reading defender Bethan Roberts earns her first senior call-up, while Liverpool striker Ceri Holland receives her first full call-up after joining the squad halfway through last month's training camp. Holland joins the squad on the back of winning the Championship Player of the Month award for her club in the English FA's Women's Championship.
The matches will be a key part of Wales' preparation for the FIFA 2023 Women's World Cup qualifying campaign, with the draw taking place on Friday 30th April.
Grainger's reign will get underway against Canada at the Leckwith Stadium on Friday 9th April (KO 6pm) whilst the match at Denmark will take place at the Cardiff City Stadium on Tuesday 13th April (KO 7.15pm). Both matches will be available to watch on the BBC Sport website and iPlayer.
"With the squad needing submitting only two days into the job, it was really important for me to utilise the existing staff from the February camp to select the squad. We want to play the higher ranked nations and there's no better test as we look to prepare for the World Cup qualifying campaign and the next four years," said Gemma Grainger.
