WNT squad selected for final UEFA Nations League games

WNT squad selected for final UEFA Nations League games

The Ireland Women’s National Team will finish off their 2023/24 UEFA Nations League campaign with games against Hungary and Northern Ireland.

Interim Head Coach Eileen Gleeson has picked 26 players for the two games, starting with Hungary in Tallaght Stadium on Friday, December 1 and then concluding with Northern Ireland in the National Stadium, Belfast on Tuesday, December 5.

There is a first call-up for Peamount United forward Ellen Dolan, who was today named as the SSE Airtricity Women’s Premier Division Player of the Month for October / November. The 17-year-old, from Offaly, scored seven goals to finish as joint second top goalscorer for the League-winning Peamount.

Both Jessie Stapleton and Ruesha Littlejohn return to the squad, while a number of players were not included due to still being on return to play procedures at their respective clubs following long-term injuries.

Ireland have already secured top spot in Group B1, which triggers promotion to League A in the Nations League, but they are keen to end the campaign with six wins following victories over Northern Ireland, Hungary and Albania (twice).

The players will report into camp on Monday, November 27 and begin preparations for the two games with training at the FAI National Training Centre.
