Ludlow Names Wales Women’s Squad For Russia Test

Jayne Ludlow has named a 20-strong squad for Wales Women’s FIFA Women’s World Cup Qualifier against Russia.

Wales take on Russia in St Petersburg on October 24 as they look to build on last month’s 1-0 victory over Kazakhstan.

Jess Fishlock’s stunning 53rd minute volley ensured Wales came back from their gruelling 7,000 mile round trip with maximum points.

Ludlow has again chosen a youthful squad with youngster Amina Vine coming into the senior squad after featuring for the intermediate teams.

And Peyton Vincze – who was named FAW Women’s Young Player of the Year recently – also wins a senior call-up.

Wales lie second in Group 1, with England leading the way after their 6-0 victory over Russia in September.

Wales Women’s squad v Russia:

Goalkeepers: Claire Skinner, Laura O’Sullivan.

Defenders: Loren Dykes, Gemma Evans, Hayley Ladd, Rhiannon Roberts, Rachel Rowe, Amina Vine, Alice Griffiths.

Midfielders: Sophie Ingle, Jess Fishlock, Angharad James, Charlie Estcourt, Kylie Nolan.

Forwards: Nadia Lawrence, Kayleigh Green, Chloe Chivers, Natasha Harding, Peyton Vincze, Grace Thomas.
