Two players from the Welsh Premier Women's League have been called up by Wales team manager Jarmo Matikainen for next week's Friendly International versus Greece.

The players both come from Cardiff City FC, whilst there are also two Swansea City Ladies and another Cardiff City star named on stand-by.

The players to make the squad are five-times capped defender Lauren Price and uncapped striker Catherine Walsh. Price, who is also a Welsh International Boxer and 18-year old Walsh will both be hopeful of gaining some game-time. Former Port Talbot forward Walsh has been prolific in the Welsh Premier Women's League this term for the Bluebirds.

Two other players will be added to the squad before they depart and Swansea duo Sarah Adams and Jodie Passmore, as well as Cardiff's Rachel Rowe, will all be hoping to make the flight.

The squad assembles on Saturday at Bisham Abbey before flying out to Athens that evening. The match will be played at 1.30pm (local) on Wednesday before an evening flight home.
