New Scotland Women’s head coach Pedro Martinez Losa has chosen his first squad ahead of their opening World Cup qualifiers this month.
Scotland are away to Hungary on Friday 17 September, kick-off 7pm (UK time) and then home to the Faroe Islands four days later at Hampden Park, with tickets available here.
Charlton Athletic goalkeeper Eartha Cumings has earned another call-up, after being involved in the June friendlies against Northern Ireland and Wales.
Brianna Westrup will also meet up with the squad for the second time alongside Rachel Corsie, who has been named as captain for the upcoming campaign.
In midfield, Caroline Weir will join the squad fresh from featuring in the Olympics for Team GB and Lana Clelland will be aiming for her first competitive appearance for Scotland since the World Cup in 2019.
Jane Ross has been recalled after missing the June friendlies following her summer signing to Rangers and will be vying for a place in the starting line-up along with AC Milan’s Christy Grimshaw who will be looking to gain her first competitive cap.
Martinez Losa is without the recently retired Kim Little, as well as Fiona Brown and Christie Murray who are currently recovering from injury.
Scotland are in a group alongside Hungary, Faroe Islands, Ukraine and Spain as they begin qualification for the 2023 World Cup which will take place in Australia and New Zealand.
