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.
