The reigning women’s World Cup champions, the United States, will host Wales in a high-profile exhibition match.
Before the World Cup, the Welsh women’s team will face the United States in a high-profile exhibition match.
The current World Cup champions will defend their title in Australia and New Zealand this summer, and Gemma Grainger’s Dragons have been scheduled to travel to the United States to face them.
As far as SunSport is aware, a verbal agreement has been reached for the tantalizing warm-up fixture, which will most likely take place in June. However, contracts have not yet been signed.
But Noel Mooney, chief executive of the Football Association of Wales, made the announcement during a trip to London earlier this month.
During Wales Week in London, Mooney went to a number of events, including a St. David’s Day dinner at the Guildhall with 500 guests.
In front of a sold-out Wembley, the United States lost a friendly to the eventual Euro champions, England, by a score of 2-1 last October.
Many people saw this match as a major step forward for women’s football.
On two separate occasions in April, the United States will play host to the Republic of Ireland, a team that has qualified for the World Cup, which will begin in Australia on July 20.
After losing in the playoffs to Switzerland last October, Wales did not qualify for the World Cup.
As a result of Grainger’s efforts, his team defeated Bosnia and nearly qualified for their first major tournament.

However, Wales’ hearts were broken when a winner was scored by a substitute, Switzerland’s Fabienne Humm, in the final seconds of extra time.
Originally from the United States, Jess Fishlock now calls the Dragons her team.
The 36-year-old midfielder currently plays for OL Reign in Seattle, where she has become a fan favorite. She has earned 134 caps for Wales’ national team.
