Introducing |19-year-old forward Rebecca McKenna can't wait to add to her Northern Ireland appearances

Senior women's manager Kenny Shiels has selected Linfield Ladies forward Rebecca McKenna in his first squad to face Norway and Wales. 

At the age of 19, Rebecca already has two caps for the senior women's team after making her debut in a 2-0 victory against Kazakstan in 2018. 

She said "Being able to play for your country and represent is always a massive thing and it's something I take great pride in.

"It's not a chance that everyone gets so when I get the chance I want to go out there and leave an impression." 

Manager Kenny Shiels says that Rebecca is in his squad on merit.

"Rebecca is an exciting player showing great potential. We have a great panel of players now and I feel we have a good chance going into these next two games."
