Jess Fishlock made her senior Wales debut in 2006.

Wales midfielder Jess Fishlock says she is concerned for her safety because of Hurricane Irma.

The Seattle Reign player, 30, is preparing for Thursday’s match at Orlando Pride, which was brought forward because of the deadly storm.

Wales boss Jayne Ludlow is worried about Fishlock, who wrote on Twitter that being in Orlando was “scary”.

Ludlow said: “She is looking forward to getting over here, hopefully safe and well.”

Hurricane Irma has caused widespread destruction across the Caribbean, reducing buildings to rubble and leaving at least nine people dead.

Projections suggest it could hit the state of Florida on Sunday.

On Thursday, Fishlock was named in the Wales squad for their opening 2019 World Cup qualifier in Kazakhstan on 17 September.

The midfielder, who won a record 100th cap in April, sat out Wales’ two friendly games against the Netherlands in July because of injury.

She also did not feature in Wales’ squad for two friendlies against Portugal earlier in June.

Wales also face Bosnia-Herzegovina, England and Russia in Group 1.

Wales squad: Claire Skinner (Oxford United WFC) Laura O’Sullivan (Yeovil Town Ladies), Loren Dykes (Bristol City WFC), Hannah Miles (Yeovil Town Ladies), Hayley Ladd (unattached), Sophie Ingle (Liverpool Ladies), Gemma Evans (Yeovil Town Ladies), Chloe Chivers (Cardiff City Ladies), Angharad James (Everton Ladies), Chloe Lloyd (Yeovil Town Ladies), Emma Beynon (Swansea City Ladies), Grace Thomas (unattached), Georgia Evans (Bristol City), Nadia Lawrence (Yeovil Town Ladies), Jess Fishlock (Seattle Reign), Natasha Harding (Liverpool Ladies), Kayleigh Green (Yeovil Town Ladies), Rhiannon Roberts (Doncaster Rovers Belles).
