Li Mengwen and Elisabeth Terland will be on international duty over the next few days.

Ten members of the WFT squad will end as busy season on international duty for their countries.

Most are involved in the latest round of qualifiers for the 2025 Euros with our three Norwegians – Guro Bergsvand, Maria Thorisdottir and Elisabeth Terland – currently preparing to face Italy in a double header between the top two in Group A1, with the home game in Oslo on Friday followed by a trip to Ferrera on 4 June.

Our Swedish pair Julia Zigiotti and Emma Kullberg are also involved in a double header in England’s group as they take on Ireland twice in five days. They visit Dublin on Friday before hosting Ireland in Solna on 4 June. Sweden have already drawn with England in the group and two wins over an Ireland team yet to take a point would put them in contention to qualify as group winners.

For Vea Sarri and Greece in Group C3, there is a game against the other unbeaten team in the section on Friday when they host Montenegro in Heraklion on Friday before they head to Torshavan on 4 June to play Faroe Islands.

Dejana Stefanovic has returned to the Serbia squad and they top Group B2 on goal difference from Scotland ahead of a double header against Slovakia with the home game in Belgrade on Friday and a trip to Trnava to come next Tuesday.

For Geum Min Lee, Jorerlyn Carabali and Li Mengwen there are friendlies during this international window.

Lee’s South Korea are in the United States for game on Saturday in Colorado and Minnesota on 5 June while Li’s China face two fixtures against Australia in Adelaide on Friday and Sydney next Monday.

Carabali’s Colombia, meanwhile, play two games in Barquisimeto against Venezuela on Friday and next Monday.
