It has been a tough old year for Pedro Martinez Losa and the Scottish Women’s national team. There were tears, heartbreak and plenty soul searching following a crushing night at Hampden in October that saw the Republic Of Ireland wreck Scotland’s hope of qualification for this year’s World Cup and the disappointing Pinatar Cup campaign that followed left fans little with little to cheer.

However, as a new look Scotland squad prepare for at the an intriguing double header, the Spanish boss will be hoping the introduction of young stars such as Rangers’ Emma Watson can give fans reason to be cheerful. She isn’t the only new face in the squad either, with Watson’s team mates Kathy Hill and Chelsea Cornet also earning their first call up for the national side – though star player Erin Cuthbert was forced to pull out of the squad due to injury alongside captain Rachel Corsie. Women’s Super League stars Sam Kerr and Hayley Raso likely to take their place in the Matilda’s line up though to ensure Losa is under no illusions of the challenge his side will be up against.

Scotland will don their striking new purple away yesterday which was launched yesterday morning (available here) as they look to scalp one of the World Cup favourites.
