Scotland Squad For Hungary Friendly

New Scotland head coach Shelley Kerr has named her squad to take on Hungary in an International Challenge Match in Budapest in September.

The squad is Shelley’s first since she took up the role of SWNT head coach, after succeeding Anna Signeul, who stepped down following Euro 2017 this summer, reports scottishfa.co.uk.

The squad is the first since Scotland veterans Ifeoma Dieke, Leanne Ross and former captain Gemma Fay announced their retirement following careers that garnered a total of 458 caps between them.

There are recalls for Manchester City striker Claire Emslie and Hibernian players Rachael Small and Lucy Graham, the latter of which will be hoping to earn her first cap.

Celtic goalkeeper Megan Cunningham is also recalled to the squad in place of former number one Gemma Fay.

Manchester City striker Jane Ross is included, having missed the matches against Portugal and Spain at the Euros following a shoulder injury she sustained in the first match against England.

Squad regulars Kim Little, Jennifer Beattie and Lizzie Arnott are all still ruled out through injury.

The match against Hungary serves as preparation for the team’s qualifying campaign for the 2019 FIFA World Cup, where Scotland have been drawn in Group 2 alongside Switzerland, Poland, Belarus and Albania.
