WATCH: Ferns’ FIFA Women’s World Cup squad to be announced on Friday

Head coach Jitka Klimková will name her 23-player New Zealand squad for the FIFA Women’s World Cup soon after midday on Friday (June 30).

The announcement will bring relief for the 23 players named, and disappointment for the 10 who will miss out after finishing the squad’s pre-tournament training camp.

Newshub report Sullivan Harnett visited the squad at their Albany camp to find out how players were handling the build-up to Friday’s announcement.
