WU19s pick squad for UEFA Round 2 Qualifiers

The Ireland Women's Under 19s travel to Norway as they attempt to secure qualification to the UEFA Women's Under-19 European Championships.
31st Mar 2023

Head Coach Dave Connell knows that his team face three difficult games in Group A1 as they take on Germany (April 5), Norway (April 8) and Croatia (April 11) - knowing that only the group winners will go through to the finals tournament in Belgium.

Ireland have to contend with a number of injuries, while captain Jessie Stapleton and defender Tara O'Hanlon have been promoted to the Ireland Women's National Team for their trip to the United States.

Connell, however, has still been able to call upon a talented group of players, most of whom play regularly in the SSE Airtricity Women's Premier Division.

After coming through a tough group in Round 1, Ireland will be looking to embrace the challenges that will come their way in these qualifiers.
