WU19s set for UEFA EURO Round 1 Qualifiers

The Ireland Women’s Under-19s will travel to Belgium for their 2023-24 UEFA European WU19 Championship Round 1 Qualifiers.

After finalising a 20-player squad, Head Coach Dave Connell will now switch the focus to their three Group A 6 games against Belgium (October 25), Faroe Islands (October 28) and Netherlands (October 31).

Ireland recently got together for three international friendly games to prepare for these qualifiers - scoring 13 goals and conceding only once - and those performances should aid their approach here.

Connell has been able to call on several players who are regulars in the SSE Airtricity Women's Premier Division - some of whom will likely be involved in the Sports Direct Women's FAI Cup Semi-Finals this coming weekend.

The aim is to make it out of their group and advance to the Elite Round of qualifying, which would be a step closer to the finals tournament in Lithuania next summer.
