Vixens Duo Earn Wales Call-Up

Bristol City Women duo Hayley Ladd and Loren Dykes have been named in Wales Women's squad for crucial Norway Qualifier.

Bristol City Women's Hayley Ladd and Loren Dykes will represent their country in a UEFA Women's EURO 2017 Group 8 Qualifier V Norway on Tuesday, 7 June 2016. KO 5.00pm. Newport Stadium, Newport.

The Wales Women's team still have the chance to make qualifying history, but if Jayne Ludlow's side are to reach the Netherlands for the UEFA Women's EURO 2017 finals, they will need to claim an impressive scalp against a decorated Norwegian outfit that have already claimed a 4-0 victory over Wales in the reverse fixture.

This is the first of three 'must-win' games for Wales, as the side head into the final straight with home advantage for all of their remaining fixtures. Norway have already proved to be difficult opposition for Jayne Ludlow's side and claimed a 4-0 victory in Aalesund last October. But Wales reacted to the reverse in the best possible way, and are undefeated since that loss having claimed seven points from an available nine to put the side in third place heading into their final three games.

Norway sit in second place behind Austria with a game in hand, but the two sides meet in Oslo on 2 June, and if Norway can complete the double over their closest rivals then they could head to Newport as group leaders depending on the result of Austria's home game against Israel on 6 June.

Wales still have it all to do if they are to qualify at the end of the campaign, and while there are still nine points left for Jayne Ludlow's side to play for, they will also be dependent on a couple of favours elsewhere in the group in order to stunt the progress of the top two.
