Wales are to face Canada and Denmark as part of their preparations for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup Qualifying Round.

It will be only the second time that Wales have faced either side, having played eighth-ranked Canada in the 2002 Algarve Cup and Denmark (ranked 14th) in a friendly tournament a decade ago.

The venue for the Canada match on Friday 9 April is yet to be announced but on Tuesday 13 April, Wales play at Cardiff City Stadium. The kick-off times will be confirmed in due course but both matches are behind closed doors.

The draw for the World Cup qualifiers will take place on Friday 30 April.
