Jess Fishlock is expected to be fit for Wales' opening World Cup qualifier against Kazakhstan on 17 September despite suffering a knee injury.

The midfielder, who won her 100th cap in April, had to be taken off during the first half of Seattle Reign's 2-0 win over Portland Thorns last week.

But Reign expect the 30-year-old to be back in full training in August.

In Fishlock's absence, Wales lost 5-0 against the Netherlands in a friendly match in Rotterdam on Saturday.
