Wales are confident Jess Fishlock will be fit for the World Cup play-offs after missing out on the final double qualifier earlier this month.

Fishlock, Wales’ most capped footballer with 134 appearances, has been named in a 26-man squad for the first of three potential play-offs against Bosnia and Herzegovina in Cardiff on October 6.

The 35-year-old midfielder has played just over half an hour for her American club OL Reign since missing Wales’ last group games against Greece and Slovenia due to a wound.
