Reading Women report for international duty

Royals head off for Euro 2021 Qualifying

5 November 2019

Another international break sees several Reading FC Women players represent their respective nations in qualifying for the UEFA Women’s Euro 2021 Championship.

A break in domestic action sees Wales, Norway, Republic of Ireland and England’s Young Lionesses represented by Royals women.

Reading’s number one Grace Moloney, who received a commemorative shirt at Sunday’s game against West Ham for 150 appearances for the Royals, makes the Republic of Ireland squad for their trip to Athens to take on Greece. Republic of Ireland currently sit second in Group I with two wins from two in the tournament so far.

No less than five Reading players are in action in Group C, as Kristine Leine, Amalie Eikeland and Lisa-Marie Utland receive call-ups to the Norway squad to take on Northern Ireland on the 8th of November in Stavanger, Norway.

Rachel Rowe and Angharad James also go up against Northern Ireland on the 12th for their native Wales. Norway top Group C with a perfect three wins from three, whereas Cymru Women sit in a respectable second place with two wins and a draw so far in their campaign. Last month, Rowe marked her return to the Wales team after a year’s absence due to injury, with her first international goal, as Wales defeated Belarus 1-0.
