Scotland Women to play two friendly matches against Denmark in Cyprus

In preparation for the Euros, Scotland will kick-off 2017 with two friendly matches against Denmark in Cyprus.

Anna Signeul’s side will embark on a training camp on Monday 16th January before playing the Danes on Friday 20th January, kick-off 1pm (UK time) at GSZ Stadium.

Three days later they will meet again on Monday 23th January, kick-off 9am (UK time) at Paralimni Municipality Stadium.

A month later Scotland will be back in the country for the Cyprus Cup.

Scotland have been drawn in a group alongside Austria, Korea Republic and New Zealand for the tournament which will be played between 27th February and 9th March.

The squad contains two Hibernian Ladies players, Joelle Murray and Lizzie Arnot.

Anna Signeul said: “This warm weather camp is ideal preparation for us in a number of ways and we’re excited to have both Kim Little and Rachel Corsie back with us.

“Denmark are ranked higher than us and are a very good side.

“They’ve got a lot of talented players who are playing in Sweden at a really high level.

“They are on course for a good Euros so we’re excited to test ourselves against them.”
