Jayne Ludlow has named a full-strength squad for Wales’ top of the table clash against England in their bid to reach the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, reports faw.cymru.

Wales currently sit top of Group A, a point ahead of England who have a game in hand over Ludlow’s side, who are yet to concede a goal at the midway point.

Following the match against England, Wales will end the qualifying campaign with three home games during the summer.

Captain Sophie Ingle will lead a squad that includes the experience of Jess Fishlock, Natasha Harding and Angharad James.

Meanwhile midfielder Hayley Ladd will be looking for game time after missing out on game time in the Cyprus Cup due to injury.

Wales will be hoping striker Kayleigh Green continues her goal scoring form, having netted three times in the last five games.

Wales squad:

Claire Skinner (Wales Performance Squad), 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 (Wales Performance Squad), Charlie Estcourt (Bristol City – on loan from Reading), Natasha Harding (Reading), Gemma Evans (Yeovil Town), Helen Ward (Watford), Kylie Nolan (Bristol City), Melissa Fletcher (Reading), Kayleigh Green (Yeovil Town), Hannah Miles (Yeovil Town).

England host Wales at Southampton’s St. Mary’s Stadium on Friday 6th April 2018 (7pm KO).
