The Scotland team will enter the game confident they can pull off that monumental result they need after an exhilarating extra time win over Euro 2022 quarter finalists Austria last week.

It was an unforgettable night at Hampden Park for those in attendance last week, with an extra time header from Bristol City striker Abi Harrison crowning a memorable evening for the 10,000+ crowd.

And now the national team will be hoping to go one better by defeating former manager Vera Pauw and her Ireland side, which is expected to be backed by another big crowd at Hampden.

Martinez-Losa side has no fresh injury concerns following Thursday’s victory, although Lucy Graham and Abi Harrison will both be pushing for starts after playing a vital roles off the bench in last week’s victory over Austria.
