Good result obviously but am I correct in thinking it’s Brazil’s 9th defeat in a row!

Be that as it may, the men struggle against the worst ranked international team on Earth.

Virtually all narrow defeats to the top five teams in the world.  2-1, 1-0 to England, 1-0 to Canada, 1-0 to USA etc

I really enjoy watching them play as you can see how much it means to them.  Cuthbert puts her heart and soul into every performance and when she stuck their right back in the stand with 5 minutes to go in a friendly, then stood up to at least three of them giving it the big one, you can see it means loads to them.  Little is a very good player and pretty obviously knows how to play football and the centre back got her head on everything pretty much. 

I hope they have a good tournament as they didn't do themselves justice with the injuries last time.

Like wise, I watched most of their qualifiers. I have fairly enjoyed it and I am looking forward to the WC. The keeper seems to be a lot more solid than Gemma Fay, but the draw looks tough (Japan, England and Argentina). Its disappointing to be drawn with England though, it'll be BBC overdrive and the patronising ''Didn't  plucky Jocko do well'' if we end up with a battling 2/3-1 loss etc, but lets be positive, a fantastic team and Kerr comes across well in the media.

I really hope they get a decent turn out for their friendly in a few weeks at Hampden against Jamaica. We should be very proud of this side. To look at the progress they have made in just 15 years is unbelievable.

A team we can all be proud of and how great is to see a Scottish national team at a major tournament.

Mon the lassies!

I can 100% say that they won't say that. That's some chip you have on your shoulder there!

Gutted for Emma Mitchell who has been left out, mainly due to missing a lot of this season through injury.  She did score the winner in the cup at the weekend so was fit enough to be included.

She also missed Euro 2017 through injury.

I think this squad is much stronger than the one that went to the Netherlands, mainly due to key players currently being available.  Cuthbert is superb and could be one of the stars of the competition if we can get out what is a really tough group.
