Women's international break: Who is playing where?

Everything you need to know ahead of City’s involvement in the latest international break, including the final round of Women’s World Cup qualifying.

An impressive 16 members of Gareth Taylor’s squad will be in action across the international break as the new domestic campaign edges nearer.

Although an exciting Barclays Women’s Super League season beckons, our players’ focus is currently set on securing their spot at next summer’s World Cup, hosted in Australia and New Zealand.

While some of our City stars have already guaranteed their nation’s spot at the tournament, there are still plenty of places up for grabs, which will be decided over the next few days.

For our three Australian players, as well as Jamaican forward Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw’s, there are also opportunities to sharpen up ahead of the new campaign in some international friendlies.

As always, we will provide a City focused report on each fixture right here on mancity.com and the official Man City app, while you can also find all the information you need ahead of the latest international break below.
