Not really, some first year academy players.

The Irish team plays good passing football and hopefully can do another series of upset like they did at the Euro.

King announces 21 player squad for FIFA U17 World Cup

tt announcementRepublic of Ireland women's U17 manager, Noel King has announced a 21 player squad for the FIFA Women's World Cup which will take place in Trinidad and Tobago from September 5-25.

Ireland will play their first ever FIFA Women's World Cup game against South American side, Brazil on Monday, September 6 before facing Canada on Thursday, September 9 with both games taking place at the Larry Gomes Stadium in Trinidad. The ‘Girls in Green' complete their Group 4 fixtures against Ghana at the Dwight Yorke Stadium in Tobago on September 13. Only the top two teams of each group will progress to the quarter finals of the competition.

Ireland's preparations for the tournament included a tri-nations cup victory over England and Denmark last weekend in Manchester while the delegation will now travel to Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Thursday August 26 for a pre-tournament training camp which includes two friendly games against tournament finalists, Trinidad and Tobago and New Zealand on August 28 and 31 respectively.

Speaking at the squad announcement, Republic of Ireland manager, Noel King said, "On the back of last weekend's tri-nations victory, we travel to Fort Lauderdale for a week long training camp and I think the games against tournament hosts, Trinidad and Tobago and New Zealand will give us a real taste of what to expect when the tournament kicks-off in September. We will be playing in conditions similar to that of Trinidad and Tobago while gaining experience against teams from two different continents. Preparation for the World Cup has been ideal but we are obviously very disappointed with the injury sustained to midfielder, Niamh McLaughlin which rules her out of contention," he said.

"We are all looking forward to our first game of the World Cup against Brazil. The South Americans have produced the world's best player in Martha and have the most enviable reputation in world football. They are currently ranked 2nd in the FIFA World Rankings in women's football and we are all really looking forward to the game which may be the toughest match of our lives. The experience that we will gain from playing teams with different styles such as Brazil, Canada and Ghana will be invaluable and will be hugely important to the development of our players," he said.

King added, "While Ireland are not considered as a massive power in world football, I believe that we go into this competition as the 2nd best team in Europe and I think that we will get the respect from all of the teams that we play. Nobody will be taking us lightly with our record in qualifying over the past year."
