Wales women face their toughest test yet when they travel to Brittany to face league leaders France on Tuesday evening in their next 2023 World Cup qualifier match.

France are ranked fifth in the world and have not lost a game in qualifying. They currently sit two points above Wales in first place.

The Welsh side are twenty-seven places below France in the rankings, but are five games into their campaign on an unbeaten streak.

With Wales thumping Greece 5-0 and France beating Kazakhstan 5-0, both teams will be vying to get a win to strengthen their chances towards automatic qualification.

With both teams currently unbeaten it is set to be an entertaining match in France tomorrow evening.

Gemma Grainger said she is excited for the match and is relishing the challenge of going up against a top five team.

She said: "We are looking forward to playing France. In our friendly games we were looking to face a higher rank team and that's what France are.

"It gives us an opportunity to see where we are at, and it is game six of ten for me."

Should Wales beat France they will move to top of their group, until France travel to Wales for the reverse fixture next April.

Until then, all eyes will be on this match as Wales face their toughest test yet against a very good French team.

The match is live on BBC Two Wales with a kick off time of 8:10pm.
