Gemma Grainger has announced a 26-player squad as Wales look to continue their unbeaten form in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifying campaign.

Wales will face Greece at Parc y Scarlets on Friday 26 November (KO 19:15) before heading to Guingamp in Britanny to face group leaders France on Tuesday 30 November. Grainger’s side go into the matches second in the group after three wins and a draw to start the campaign.
