Hannah Cain has been forced to withdraw from the Wales squad for the opening World Cup qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Estonia.

The former Everton forward has picked up a foot injury.

Cain, 22, had been in line for a first Wales cap after switching her allegiances from England.

Tottenham Hotspur forward Morgan Rogers, 19, has joined up with the squad for her first senior team call-up.

Rogers, who has previously played for Wales U17 and U19 sides, signed for Tottenham’s academy in the summer from Cardiff City LFC and made her first team debut as a substitute in a pre-season friendly against Arsenal.

Cain played for Wales Under-17s in 2014 before representing England Under-17s, Under-19s and Under-21s.

She had opted though to return for Wales who host Kazakhstan on 17 September at Parc y Scarlets, Llanelli, before an away match in Estonia on 21 September.
