Midfielder Jess Fishlock hopes to be fit for Wales women's crucial Euro 2017 qualifier against Norway on 7 June.

Fishlock, 29, fractured a tibia in Seattle Reign's 3-0 win over Boston Breakers on 24 April and was ruled out for between four and six weeks

But Fishlock has been pleased with her recovery and hopes to be back playing sooner than expected.

"I aim to be back by the end of this month and then to be available for the Wales game," she told BBC Wales Sport.

"But it's easier to make that decision if I've played for Seattle before doing that so I know that I'm ok and I'm back strong."

Wales are third in qualifying Group 8, five points behind leaders Austria and second-placed Norway, who they host in Newport next month.
