Women's World Cup 2015: Wales name strong squad for Ukraine

Wales v England
England beat Wales 4-0 in Cardiff to win Group Six and qualify for the World Cup

Midfielder Hayley Ladd is the only notable absentee from the Wales Women's squad for the World Cup qualifier in Ukraine on 17 September.

Ladd is still out after breaking her ankle in the 1-0 win over Turkey.

Wales are looking to claim second after England secured their place in next year's finals after a 4-0 win in Cardiff.

They need to win their final match and hope results go their way in the other groups to secure a play-off spot.

Third-placed Ukraine are three points behind Wales but with a game in hand - a home game against Turkey on 13 September.

The four runners-up with the best record against the teams who finish first, third, fourth and fifth in their groups go into the play-offs.

Wales squad: Nicola Davies (Reading), Sophie Dando (Cardiff City Ladies), Kylie Davies (Millwall), Nicola Cousins (Yeovil Town), Carys Hawkins (Fylkir), Sophie Ingle (Bristol Academy), Helen Bleazard (Yeovil Town), Loren Dykes (Bristol Academy), Angharad James (Bristol Academy), Michelle Green (Cardiff City), Jessica Fishlock (Seattle Reign), Josie Green (Watford), Sam Quayle (Coventry City), Megan Wynne (Watford), Nadia Lawrence (Ibv Vestmannaeyjar), Sarah Wiltshire (Yeovil Town), Hannah Keryakoplis (Birmingham City), Natasha Harding (Bristol Academy), Sophie Cole (Leeds United), Catherine Walsh
