#WU19EURO: Scotland squad announced

Scotland Women’s U-19s head coach Pauline Hamill has named her squad for the upcoming UEFA European Championship.

Drawn alongside the Netherlands, Norway and five-time champions France, a top-two finish in the group would secure a semi-final berth for Hamill’s side, alongside a spot at next year’s FIFA Women’s U-20 World Cup.

The tournament kicks-off on Tuesday 16 July, with matches taking place at St Mirren Park in Paisley, Glasgow’s Firhill Stadium, Forthbank Stadium in Stirling and Perth’s McDiarmid Park.

Hamill told scottishfa.co.uk: “Preparations have gone well and we’ve got a young group of players desperate to do well on the big stage.

“We’re in a tough group but it’s a challenge I know the players will relish.

“The players can’t wait to play in front of a loud home crowd and hopefully the country gets behind us, like they did for the ‘A’ squad’s World Cup debut in France.”
