A place at next summer's finals tournament in Belgium is the target for Dave Connell's squad who must take on Poland, Northern Ireland and France just to reach the Elite Round.

For his squad selection, Connell is without several players due to injury but has been able to include Shelbourne defender Jessie Stapleton, who was recently involved with the Ireland WNT.

There is a first call-up for Galway WFC attacker Rola Olusola, while Cork City midfielder Ellie O'Brien and Sligo Rovers ace Kerri O'Hara will be hoping to earn a first appearance at this level.
