The Republic of Ireland Women’s Under-19s will play two international friendly games in Centro de Estágios do Luso, Portugal, next week.
These two games against Portugal will help Dave Connell and his management team start the preparations for the upcoming UEFA Women’s Under-19 European Championship Qualifiers.
For the qualifiers, the Republic of Ireland will play Poland away as well as playing Northern Ireland and France.
Connell welcomes the trio of Jessie Stapleton, Ellen Molloy and Abbie Larkin back from the WNT senior squad for next week’s games.
The three players were involved for the FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifying wins over Finland and Slovakia.
There is a first call-up for Reading’s Lucy Brame, while 16 of the squad have featured in the SSE Airtricity Women’s National League already this season.
