Gemma Grainger has announced a 26-player squad as Wales prepare to face Scotland at Parc y Scarlets on Tuesday 15th June (KO time TBC).
Grainger has an almost full strength squad available, including Jessica Fishlock and Angharad James who will both be returning from their clubs in the USA and captain Sophie Ingle, who will be her country's sole representative in the Team GB squad for the Olympic Games.
Hayley Ladd returns to the squad after missing last month's matches against Canada and Denmark, whilst Megan Wynne also returns to the squad after an ACL injury. Wynne last played for Wales in March 2020 when she scored in a 2-0 against Estonia at the Racecourse in Wrexham. However, after impressing on her debut at last month's camp, Ceri Holland misses out on a place in the squad due to injury.
Wales and Scotland last met in the 2017 Cyprus Cup, where Scotland won 6-5 on penalties after a goalless draw. The Scots, ranked 23rd in the world, qualified for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup where they narrowly missed out on a spot in the last sixteen.
The match will be Wales' final chance to prepare for the FIFA 2023 Women's World Cup qualifying campaign which begins in September. Wales have been drawn alongside France, Slovenia, Greece, Kazakhstan and Estonia in Group I. The fixture will be played behind closed doors due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
