Scotland kick off their UEFA Women’s EURO 2021 Qualifiers against Cyprus this Friday but injuries have caused a couple of changes to the squad.

Jamie-Lee Napier received a late call up after injuries forced Erin Cuthbert and Fiona Brown to withdraw from the squad.

Hibernian teammate Amy Muir was also selected alongside Napier but was forced pull out due to an injury sustained in Hibernian’s Edinburgh Derby victory over Hearts on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Nicola Docherty, who was an integral part of the Scotland team at the World Cup, has been speaking to about the squad’s ambition to qualify for another major tournament.

“The whole squad is really looking forward to the game against Cyprus in front of a strong crowd at Easter Road, especially after the attendance we had for the send-off game at Hampden before the World Cup.

“We want to keep building on the momentum we’ve created and hopefully get our qualification campaign off to a good start.

“The World Cup was amazing but it’s now time to make our next steps as a team create our next adventure.”

Tickets can be bought online HERE. at £5 for adults and £2 for concessions.

The match – Scotland’s first ever meeting with Cyprus – will be live on BBC ALBA and BBC Sport online.
