Northern Ireland name squad
 Women's Football World Cup News - 10 Sep 2021
Northern Ireland senior women's team manager Kenny Shiels has strengthened his panel for two FIFA Women's World Cup 2023 qualifiers later this month by welcoming back senior players who have been missing from recent squads.
Talismanic Liverpool attacking midfielder Rachel Furness returns to the fold after recovering from the broken leg she sustained in the first leg of the Women's Euro 2022 play-off against Ukraine back in April.
Also returning is Demi Vance of Rangers, the experienced full back/midfielder who has recovered from an anterior cruciate ligament injury which she picked up in a Euro qualifier against Belarus last November.
They are joined in the 23-strong panel by Glentoran Women attacking midfielder Caragh Milligan, who has overcome a long term injury, and Cliftonville Ladies striker Caitlin McGuinness, who last featured in a squad back in December.
Cliftonville Ladies defender Kelsie Burrows, Glentoran Women striker Danielle Maxwell and young Crusaders Strikers goalkeeper Maddy Harvey-Clifford have returned to the fold as well.
Missing from Shiels' panel this time due to injury is young Cliftonville Ladies defender Toni-Leigh Finnegan.
Other players missing out - all were in the squad chosen to face Scotland in early summer - include Glentoran trio Joely Andrews, Sam Kelly and Casey Howe along with Cliftonville defender Fi Morgan and Lisburn Rangers defender Ella Haughey.
Still recovering from long term injuries are Rangers Women midfielder Megan Bell and Linfield Ladies pair Ashley Hutton and Abbie Magee, while Everton striker Simone Magill is injured, too.
Northern Ireland begin their quest for a place at the Women's World Cup in 2023 - it is being hosted by Australia and New Zealand - with a qualifier against Luxembourg at Inver Park in Larne next Friday (17th September) and four days later (Tuesday 21st September) they will face Latvia at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park. Both games kick off at 7.45pm.
It will be Luxembourg's first ever fixture in a full qualifying stage for a major tournament, while Latvia will be looking to get off to a good start following a poor showing in the UEFA Women's Euro 2022 qualifiers.
After the two games this month, Kenny Shiels will prepare his side for a trip to Wembley where they are due to face top seeds England on 23rd October and then it's back home for a qualifier against Austria, the second seeds in the group, on 26th October.
