Leah Williamson and Jade Moore have been added to the England squad for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifiers against Wales and Bosnia & Herzegovina.

Uncapped Arsenal defender Williamson and Reading midfielder Moore were already due to train with the Lionesses this week at St. George’s Park, but were drafted into the 23-player selection following the withdrawal of Chelsea centre-back Millie Bright (ankle) and Manchester City midfielder Jill Scott (back).

England will welcome Wales to Southampton FC’s St. Mary’s Stadium this Friday [6 April], for their first fixture at the Premier League ground since 2006. Wales top qualifying Group 1 with ten points from four games, a point ahead of England having played a game more. The match will be followed by a trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina on Tuesday week [10 April].

Tickets for the Wales match at St. Mary’ Stadium, Southampton are on sale. Children and concessions tickets are just £1 and group booking and Charter Standard discounts apply.
