Colvill links up with WNT squad in Iceland

The Republic of Ireland Women's National Team landed in Iceland ahead of their international double-header and have brought forward Aoife Colvill with them.
7th Jun 2021

Born in Australia, Colvill qualifies for Ireland through her Donegal-born Grandmother (Bernadette Barrett) and will train with Vera Pauw's squad ahead of FIFA international clearance coming through.

Colvill, 20, helped Glasgow City secure their 14th Scottish Women's Premier League title in their final game of the season against Rangers - where club-mate Niamh Farrelly was on the scoresheet.

Also drafted into the squad is Wexford Youths midfielder Ellen Molloy, who was initially an injury doubt but came through the SSE Airtricity Women's National League draw with Peamount United.

The Ireland squad will begin preparations straight away in Reykjavik ahead of Friday's first encounter with Iceland, who are 17th in the FIFA Women's World Rankings.
