Wilson will be using the training camp and matches to prepare for the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-16 Women-s Championships, which will be held in China in September this year.
“This my first opportunity to work with this group girls as the head coach,” said Wilson.
“There are a couple of new faces in the group in comparison to the squad that played against Korea recently.
