Southampton FC Women have six first team players in action during the penultimate international break of the season.

Laura Rafferty maintains her place in the Northern Ireland squad as they face Montenegro in the UEFA Women's Nations League play-offs, looking to keep their place in League B of the competition's groups.

Elsewhere, there is friendly action for the remaining internationals as Alice Griffiths makes her return to the full Wales squad after recovering from her recent injury to start Saints' last two games.

The quartet of Saints' England Under-23s stars kept their place in the Young Lionesses' squad for a warm weather training camp, but Kayla Rendell pulled out of the squad to stay at Staplewood.

Ella Morris, Lucia Kendall, and Molly Pike will face Spain and the Netherlands in Marbella, where they will also benefit from training alongside Sarina Wiegman's senior squad.

There is also a return to the England youth age groups for Megan Collett, who has earned her first call-up to the Under-19s squad after her impressive recent form.

Finally, from Southampton's Under-21s, Sophie Harwood enjoyed recent success with England's Under-17s as they lifted the MIMA Cup tournament in Pinatar.

Isabelle Seamer will hope to do the same with England's Under-16s in a UEFA Development Tournament in Turkey.
