Australia-born Glasgow City striker Aoife Colvill has been called up the Republic of Ireland squad for the double-header against Iceland.

Vera Pauw's panel landed in Reykjavík on Monday ahead of their first game on Friday evening.

Born Down Under, Colvill qualifies for Ireland through her Donegal-born grandmother. She'll be training with the team as she awaits her FIFA international clearance.

The 20-year-old helped Glasgow City to win their 14th Scottish Women's Premier League title in their final game of the season against Rangers, when clubmate Niamh Farrelly was on the scoresheet.

In April, Farrelly talked up the talents of Colvill, saying: "She's a strong, physical player, a good finisher, so she'll be a great addition to the squad and she was chatting to me about the Ireland camp and stuff and how things are run and obviously I was all praise because it's great and all.

"All the girls are great here and they'll all be very welcoming for when Aoife comes in."

Wexford Youths midfielder Ellen Molloy has also been added to the squad.

Molloy was initially an injury doubt but she came through her team's SSE Airtricity Women's National League draw against Peamount United at the weekend.

Iceland are 17th in the FIFA Women's World Rankings.
