Gemma Grainger has chosen her 26-player squad for her side’s FIFA Women’s World Cup Qualification Play-Off fixtures in October.

Grainger’s side face Bosnia & Herzegovina at the Cardiff City Stadium on Thursday 6 October (KO 19:15) in the First Round, the winners then facing Switzerland at Stadion Letzigrund, Zurich on October 11 (KO 19:00).

Grainger has an almost full-strength squad available, with the only omission being Natasha Harding who is unavailable due to personal reasons.
