Who is playing?
West Ham United Women have three players that will be pulling on their international jersey’s before returning back to east London. Mackenzie Arnold, Dagny Brynjarsdottir and Tameka Yallop have all been called up for their nations.
Mackenzie Arnold and Tameka Yallop will take on the Republic of Ireland in a friendly match on Tuesday 21 September, with the game taking place at the Tallaght Stadium in Dublin.
This will be the first time that the squad have linked up since their impressive performances at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, which saw them knock out Team GB at the quarter-final stage before being defeated by Sweden.
Manager, Tony Gustavsson will be hoping that his team can put in a good performance against the Irish, who have former Hammers goalkeeper Courtney Brosnan in their squad for the fixture.
Yallop, who is yet to feature in the Claret & Blue of West Ham United due to issues involving her passport will arrive in east London after this international break.
