Vauxhall International Challenge Match
Scotland vs. Netherlands
Tony Macaroni Arena, Livingston
Thursday 20 October 2016
Fresh from qualifying for Euro 2017 next summer, Anna Signeul has named her squad to face the host nation, Netherlands tonight.
On form midfielder Erin Cuthbert has been called up after captaining the under-19s in their qualifying matches where she scored five goals in an 11-0 win over Albania.
Ifeoma Dieke returns to the squad after picking up an injury before the last match against Iceland with Frankie Brown also back involved.
Head Coach Anna Signeul said: “We’re still on a high from qualification for the Euros and everyone is looking forward to preparing as best as possible for next summer.
“We know the Netherlands well and they are physical, very technical and have some brilliant players such as Vivianne Miedema who plays for Bayern Munich with Lisa (Evans).
“It’s nice to have Erin Cuthbert back involved in the squad as she has a great footballing brain and technique for a young player.
“She had a great debut against Belarus earlier this year and we’re looking forward to seeing her continue to develop in the ‘A’ squad.
“We’re also happy that Frankie Brown is back after a long time out through injury.
“With Holland hosting the Euros they’ll be determined to prepare well too so it’s be a good challenge for us.”
Please Note: There will be a cash gate in operation at the Tony Macaroni Arena for the game. Adults £5, Concessions £2.
