Rafferty recalled for International duty with Northern Ireland

Laura Rafferty has been named in the 23-strong Northern Ireland squad who will take on Ukraine over two legs for a place at the 2022 Women's European Championships.

The 24-cap centre-back has been absent from the international stage for two years since rupturing her knee ligaments back in 2019. However, Rafferty has gone from strength to strength for the Robins since arriving in the West Country on-loan from Brighton and Hove Albion at the start of the 2020/21 season. 

The first of the two play-off games is being played at the Kolos Stadium, home of Ukraine Premier League club FC Kolos Kovalivka, kick-off time on April 9th is 5pm BST.

The second leg will be held at Seaview in Belfast on April 13th with the action getting underway at 7:45pm. 

The winners of the two-legged play-off will take their place at the Women's European Championship finals in England next summer.
