Jess Fishlock needs one more cap to reach 100 for Wales.



In domestic action, today is FAW Cup semi-final day, and Swansea have won 10 games in a row in the Welsh Premier.

A few matters to attend to:

Should there be a united Great Britain women's football team at the 2020 Olympics?

The head of the Welsh FA sounds like he's in favour, although he seems to be in a minority:

Maybe Team GB could play against Scotland in round 1   :o


On the field, Wales and Northern Ireland played a pair of friendlies at Ystrad Mynach, with quite a similar outcome in each game. Jess Fishlock won her 100th cap and scored a fine goal in the first match:

Also, last weekend was the FAW Women's Cup Final 2017, a match which went down to the wire on penalties. Lovers of great goalkeeping may want to look away now :'(

Wales will play England twice in 2018, in qualifying for the World Cup 2019.

The campaign kicks off with two away trips, Kazakhstan v Wales on 7 Sep 2017, and Russia v Wales on 24 Oct 2017.

Wales have played two away friendlies in Portugal, with mixed fortunes:

Swansea are in the Women's Champions League 2017/18 qualifying round, and will have a tough task in Romania in August.

Their three opponents are Hibernian, Olimpia Cluj and WFC-2 Kharkiv:

“I can’t wait for it to start,” said Jodie Passmore, who netted 22 times across all competitions last season. “I’ve experienced it before in both Cyprus and Slovenia and it’s brilliant. It’s not what you expect it to be - the experience is like no other. It’s by far the best level I’ve played at.”
