Scotland Women’s matches against Cyprus and Portugal, which were due to be played in September, have been postponed until February 2021 by UEFA.

Scotland were scheduled to play Cyprus away from home on 18 September and at home to Portugal on 22 September in European Championship qualifiers.

With several domestic competitions yet to restart across countries in Europe, the decision has been made to reschedule the matches with Scotland still set to play against Albania and Finland in October.

Head coach Shelley Kerr told “We accept UEFA’s decision to postpone our matches in September, which allows our players added preparation time for the games in October.

“With the majority of our players yet to have fully resumed their club season, postponing the games will aid us in our qualification hopes and we look forward to resuming our qualifying campaign in October.”

Scotland next host Albania at Tynecastle Park on Friday 23 October and then visit Finland four days later.
