Scotland starting XI vs Lionesses: Team news, predicted line up for Nations League clash at Stadium Of Light
Scotland head to the North East England to face the Lionesses in their first ever UEFA Women's Nations League game at the Stadium Of Light. Here’s which 11 players we think predict will start against England.
They haven't faced each other since the 2019 World Cup in France but Scotland will finally lock horns with England again this Friday as they begin their inaugural UEFA Womens Nation's League campaign in Sunderland.
Pedro Martinez Losa's side head into the Auld Enemy clash full of confidence after winning their last four games and with over 40,000 fans expected at the Stadium Of Light, it is certain to be an occasion to remember for both sides.
Scotland have been buoyed by the return of captain Rachel Corsie from injury, while youngsters Lauren Davidson, Emma Watson and Kirsty MacLean have Tartan Army fans dreaming of an upset in the North East of England.
As Corsie admitted though, the Lionesses will be a real tough task for Losa's side. Winners of the European Championship last summer, they were inches away from adding the World Cup trophy trophy to their honours in Australia this summer.
With a packed out home end and a dedicated Scotland away end for the first time, the game is being met with much anticipation. We predict which starting XI Scotland will go with as they look to topple the Lionesses on Friday.
