Scotland play host to Israel, who they beat 6-1 in the first match of their EURO 2013 qualifying campaign, followed by the second game against the Republic of Ireland, travelling to Cork to face the side they defeated 2-1 back in April at Tynecastle thanks to two late goals from Christie Murray and Rhonda Jones.

Anna Signeul said: “We’ve passed the half-way point in the campaign now and every match is crucial as we aim to consolidate our place in the group.

“Although we defeated Israel in the first match, they are a well-organised side, and we can’t take them for granted. We had a tough match against Republic of Ireland in April, but we showed our determination to get the result that we needed. We can expect a similar test in Cork.

“We look forward to playing at Tynecastle again on 16th June, where we always get fantastic backing. I hope the fans are looking forward to a 3pm Saturday kick-off in Edinburgh as much as we are.”

Scotland currently sit in second spot in Group 4, behind group leaders France who are favourites to qualify.
