WALES Women’s manager, JAYNE Ludlow, has announced her 26 player squad for Wales’ final UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 qualifier against Belarus next month.
The squad features three players in Chloe Williams, Esther Morgan and Caitlin Morris who could make their Welsh debuts.
The usual experienced candidates of Sophie Ingle, Jess Fishlock, Natasha Harding and Wales’ all-time record goal scorer Helen Ward are all involved. However, Wales have been dealt a blow with Morgan’s Tottenham team-mate Anna Filbey being ruled out as a result of an ACL injury.

A victory for Ludlow’s side and Northern Ireland dropping points against the Belarusians on Friday December 4 would mean Wales will reach the play-offs for a major tournament for the first time ever.
The nine group winners and the three best runners-up will qualify for Euro 2022, meanwhile the six other runners-up will have to compete in the play-offs. The play-offs will take place in April with the date yet to be confirmed.
Wales face Belarus on Tuesday, December 1st at Rodney Parade, Newport.
