Wylie’s WU17s to face Scotland, Italy and Montenegro in mini tournament

Northern Ireland Women’s U17s will be competing in three Euro qualifiers in Scotland over the next seven days.

Alfie Wylie’s side are taking part in a mini tournament as part of the qualifying round for the 2020 UEFA European Women’s Under-17 Championship.

Their first game in Group 10 takes place later today when they face hosts Scotland in Edinburgh (5.30pm start).

Next up for the Northern Ireland girls is a match against Italy’s WU17s on Thursday, while their final game in the mini tournament is versus Montenegro on Sunday. All games are being played at the Oriam complex.

The top two sides in 11 groups plus the four third-placed teams with the best record against the top two in their section will go into an elite round draw later this year, with the elite round games in spring 2020. Seven teams will eventually join hosts Sweden in the finals in May 2020.
