Captain Marissa Callaghan has been named in the Northern Ireland Women’s squad ahead of next month’s European Championship, despite recent injury concerns.
The midfielder, who scored in a 2-0 win vs Ukraine to help her nation qualify for the tournament finals, did not feature in last week’s final warm-up game against Belgium.
Defender Ashley Hutton, who is also returning from injury, has been selected after undergoing knee surgery shortly after Northern Ireland’s qualifying campaign.
