Seven players in action over the women's international break
Mon 05 April 2021, 17:30|Tottenham Hotspur
Spurs Women have seven players representing their countries during the international window.
Esther Morgan, 18, has received her third successive call-up to Wales’ senior squad alongside Josie Green and on-loan Anna Filbey.
Our Welsh trio could line up against Shelina Zadorsky when Wales host Canada on Friday, before facing Denmark on Tuesday 13 April. The friendlies mark the start of Wales’ training for the 2023 World Cup qualification campaign, which begins in September.
Following their game against Wales, Shelina and Canada will face England next Tuesday as part of their continued preparations for the Olympic Games in Tokyo this summer. The match is available to watch live on BBC Four.
Meanwhile, Alanna Kennedy is in the Australia squad as the Matildas step up their preparations for Tokyo with friendlies against Germany and the Netherlands.
Goalkeeper Aurora Mikalsen has joined up with the Norwegian national team ahead of their games against Germany and Belgium.
Elsewhere, with two spaces yet to be filled at this summer’s Olympics, there is plenty at stake for So-hyun Cho and Korea Republic who will be aiming to book their place with victory in their final qualifying matches against China.
The winner of the tie, which will be played over two legs, will qualify for the Games as one of three Asian teams alongside hosts Japan and Australia.
