Anna Signeul announces Scotland squad for Iceland friendly

Ahead of the friendly clash with Iceland, Scotland head coach Anna Signeul named her squad to face the Scandinavian side. Following the Scots 2-0 win over Cameroon last month, Signeul will use this friendly to iron out all the kinks as they look to secure that solitary point they need out of their two remaining games to secure a play off place for the UEFA Women’s EURO championships 2013 in Sweden.

With Ifeoma Dieke, Kim Little and Jane Ross all away on Olympic duty with TEAM GB, Signeul will be using this game to test some fringe players. Sadly Dieke could ultimately be ruled out of both EURO 2013 qualifiers due to knee ligament damage picked up in the second half of Saturday’s 3-0 win over Cameroon in Cardiff.

On the back of the Women’s TEAM GB football side securing a quarter-final place in the Olympics and the games held at Hampden this month, there is a hope that the feel good factor of women’s football could transfer to the Scottish game both domestically and internationally. With the SPL season kick off this weekend, it could prove tough for the women’s side to secure a sizeable crowd – more than what they have secured in the past. But you can’t argue with £5 on the gate for adults and £2 for children can you?
