Scotland will warm up for their 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualification campaign with friendlies away to Northern Ireland and Wales.

Scotland will first travel to Belfast to take on Northern Ireland side on Thursday 10 June, then five days later they face Wales in Llanelli.

The matches will act as preparation for Scotland as they set their sights on their FIFA World Cup Qualifying double header in September, against Hungary and Faroe Islands. Scotland were also drawn with Spain and Ukraine in their World Cup Qualifying group.

Stuart McLaren will lead the team as interim head coach after being in charge in February for the 10-0 win against Cyprus and narrow defeat to Portugal.

Head of Girls’ and Women’s Football, Fiona McIntyre, told scottishfa.co.uk: “These two matches will act as invaluable preparation for the team as they look towards their next two competitive matches in September. Against two improving nations in women’s football these games will offer an opportunity for the team to prepare for what lies ahead as we aim for back-to-back World Cup qualification.”
