Rhian Wilkinson has announced her squad as Wales look to build on a strong start to their UEFA Women’s EURO 2025 qualifiers when playing Ukraine twice.

Carrie Jones and Safia Middleton-Patel return to the squad after missing the April matches due to injury and four uncapped players have been selected; Poppy Soper, Ellen Jones, Olivia Francis and Tianna Teisar.

Wilkinson has an almost full-strength squad available to select from including centurions Jess Fishlock, Sophie Ingle and Angharad James, but Elise Hughes is unavailable after picking up an ACL injury in the penultimate game of the season for Crystal Palace.

After a strong start to the campaign with a 4-0 win against Croatian and a 6-0 win in Podujevo against Kosovo, Wilkinson will be hoping to build on those results when they face Ukraine in Parc y Scarlets, Llanelli (Friday 31 May) and again on Tuesday 4 June in the Stadion Respect Energy near Poznan in Poland.

Tickets for the match in Llanelli (KO 7:15pm) are available to purchase on the FAW ticketing website, priced at £10 for adults and £5 for children, with discounts available for Red Wall members.
