Jayne Ludlow recently named her squad for Wales’ upcoming home games in their FIFA Women’s World Cup Qualification bid.


  • Bosnia (7 June 19:00, Liberty Stadium, Swansea)
  • Russia (12 June 19:00, Newport Stadium, Newport)

Following a goalless draw against group leaders England, Wales welcome Bosnia-Herzegovina and Russia to Swansea and Newport, reports faw.cymru.

Captain Sophie Ingle will lead a squad that includes the experience of Jess Fishlock, Natasha Harding and Angharad James, with Laura O’Sullivan selected as one of the goalkeepers after her heroics against the Lionesses. Unfortunately Charlie Estcourt misses out due to a knee injury.

Ludlow has added four players to the twenty that were picked for the England match, bringing in Ffion Morgan, Tamsyn Sibanda, Olivia Clarke and forward Grace Horrell.

Both games will be shown live on BBC Two Wales and the BBC Sport website.

Wales squad: Claire Skinner (Cardiff City FC), Olivia Clarke (Boston United), Laura O’Sullivan (Cyncoed); Loren Dykes (Bristol City), Sophie Ingle (Liverpool), Alice Griffiths (Wales Performance Squad), Rhiannon Roberts (Doncaster Rovers Belles), Rachel Rowe (Reading), Elise Hughes (Everton); Jess Fishlock (Seattle Reign), Hayley Ladd (Birmingham City), Angharad James (Everton), Nadia Lawrence (Reading), Gemma Evans (Yeovil Town), Ffion Morgan (Wales Performance Squad), Tamsyn Sibanda (Arsenal); Helen Ward (Watford), Kylie Nolan (Wales Performance Squad), Melissa Fletcher (Reading), Kayleigh Green (Yeovil Town), Hannah Miles (Yeovil Town), Grace Horrell (Cyncoed)
