Donegal Sister's Keri and Jodie Loughrey  have been included in the Republic of Ireland squad for the upcoming matches.

Head Coach James Scott has selected a strong roster of players - with eight different EA SPORTS Women's Underage League clubs represented - for three games in Norway.

They will kick off against Hungary on Saturday, October 9th, followed closely by Bulgaria on Tuesday, October 12th, before finishing against host nation Norway on Friday, October 15th.
