Former Wales internationals announced the squad for two FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifiers as part of celebrations for the side’s 200th match.

Wales played their first official match in September 1993 against Iceland at Afan Lido and will be playing their 200th match on Tuesday 22 October against Slovenia in Lendava. Former internationals from across the last 28 years and the unaffiliated team from earlier years announced the squad in a video released on the FAW’s social media platforms.

Grainger has a full-strength squad available to build on the victories over Kazakhstan and Estonia last month. Hannah Cain will be involved in her first camp after missing out last month with an injury, whilst the likes of Jess Fishlock and Sophie Ingle come into the international window following a rich vein of form at their clubs.

Following the match against Slovenia in Lendava, Wales will return to home soil to face Estonia in the Cardiff City Stadium on Tuesday 26 October (KO 19:15). Tickets for the Estonia match start at only £2 (group bookings) and £4 (individual bookings) for kids, available at faw.cymru/tickets.
