Gemma Grainger has chosen her 26-player squad for her side’s key FIFA Women’s World Cup Qualification Play-Off fixtures in October.
For the first time in history Cymru have advanced to the Play-Off stages to reach a FIFA Women’s World Cup. Grainger’s side face Bosnia & Herzegovina at the Cardiff City Stadium on Thursday 6 October (KO 19:15) in the First Round. A win for Cymru would see them advance to the Second Round where they will take on 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.
More than 9,000 tickets have been sold for the match against Bosnia & Herzegovina, with the team hoping to see another record-breaking crowd for the third time in this campaign. Tickets for the match start at only £2 (group bookings) and £4 (individual bookings) for kids, available at faw.cymru/tickets.
