Pauw selects squad for qualifier away to Greece

Republic of Ireland Women's National Team manager Vera Pauw announced a 24-player squad for the UEFA Women's EURO 2021 qualifier away to Greece.
5th Nov 2019

The qualifier, which will be Ireland's third in the campaign, will take place in Panionios, Athens on Tuesday, November 12, with kick-off set for 13:00 (15:00 local time). 

Midfielder Denise O'Sullivan, who recently helped North Carolina Courage retain their NWSL title in the United States, is included along with three players who have qualified for the quarter-finals of the UEFA Women's Champions League (Louise Quinn, Katie McCabe, Clare Shine).

Wexford Youths forward Rianna Jarrett is also part of the squad following last Sunday's triumph in the Só Hotels FAI Women's Cup Final at Aviva Stadium, while seven other home-based players have been called up.

Ireland sit second in Group I following wins over Montenegro and Ukraine with five goals scored and two conceded. This next game, against Greece, will be the final fixture of 2019 before action resumes in March 2020 with a double header (home to Greece, away to Montenegro). 

The squad will meet up on Wednesday, November 6th to begin preparations for the game before flying to Greece on Sunday ahead of Tuesday's qualifier.
