AMBER Barrett and Tyler Toland have named in the Republic of Ireland women’s national team for next week’s UEFA Women’s EURO 2021 qualifier away to Greece.
Manger Vera Pauw announced a 24-player squad today for the game, which will be Ireland’s third in the campaign, will take place in Panionios, Athens on Tuesday, November 12.
The two Donegal women were unused substitutes in the 3-2 home win over Ukraine.
Both players made big moves this year with Barrett now playing with FC Koln in Germany and Toland having joined Manchester City.
Ireland sit second in Group I following wins over Montenegro and Ukraine with five goals scored and two conceded.
This next game, against Greece, will be the final fixture of 2019 before action resumes in March 2020 with a double header (home to Greece, away to Montenegro).
Wexford Youths forward Rianna Jarrett is also part of the squad following last Sunday’s triumph in the Só Hotels FAI Women’s Cup Final at Aviva Stadium, while seven other home-based players have been called up.
The squad will meet up on Wednesday, November 6th to begin preparations for the game before flying to Greece on Sunday ahead of Tuesday’s qualifier.
