CHERELLE KHASSAL of Wexford Youths has been named by manager Sue Ronan on the squad to play in two vital UEFA Women's Euro 2013 qualifiers versus Wales on June 16 (5 p.m.) and Scotland on June 21 (7.30 p.m.). Both matches will be played at Turner's Cross in Cork.
Khassal impressed on her debut appearance in Switzerland last month, and the manager believes 'that will stand to us for these matches. We know what we need to do after losing in Edinburgh but we have real quality in this side and the girls are full of belief'.
Meanwhile, two Wexford players have also been named in the Irish Junior international men's squad after catching the eye in the county's Oscar Traynor Cup campaign.
Leighton Gleeson of Courtown Hibs and Paul Murphy (North End United) have been asked to report to the AUL Complex, Clonshaugh, Dublin on Saturday, July 7, at 9.30 a.m. for training games. Manager Gerry Smith will then name a squad for a Junior international against Northern Ireland on Tuesday, August 21, at a venue to be confirmed.
