Scotland Women make their long awaited return to Hampden Park this evening as they face the Faroe Islands in a vital World Cup qualifier.
New boss Pedro Martínez Losa took charge of his first game last week, as goals from Erin Cuthbert and Martha Thomas meant Scotland defeated Hungary 2-0 to start their qualifying campaign in perfect fashion – and he’ll be looking to make it two in two as his side return to Hampden for the first time since a 3-2 win over Jamaica in May 2019.
Its been a disruptive first few weeks for the new manager, with key midfielder Kim Little announcing her surprise international retirement and Manchester City’s Caroline Weir pulling out of the squad due to injury.
Birmingham City’s Christie Murray and Rosengard forward Fiona Brown have also been ruled out with long term injuries, while West Ham defender Lisa Evans was forced out of the squad just last week.
Nevertheless, an excellent performance in Budapest last week has put the Spanish boss side second top of World Cup qualifying Group E and gives his side to put down a marker to their group opponents as they face bottom of the group Faroe Islands tonight at Scotland’s National Team.
What time is Scotland Women vs Faroe Islands?
Where: Hampden Park, Glasgow, Scotland, Tuesday 21 September 7:35pm
The match will mark the Scotland Women’s first match at the national stadium since the Scottish FA’s announcement the team will play all their women's internationals at Hampden Park in order to "inspire" further growth in the women’s game across the country.
A five-year plan was launched by the Scottish FA in July, as the SFA aims to increase the number of professional players by 10% per year.
On the announcement, head of women's football Fiona McIntyre told the BBC: "We're confident we can meet that target.
“The growth in the last five years has been really significant. We've gone from one or two professional players to the 70-plus that we have now.
"We understand the clubs and league's ambition and the direction they want to go in."
