Scotland Head Coach Anna Signeul has selected her squad for their opening UEFA Women's Euro 2013 qualifier against Israel at the Ness Ziona Municipal Stadium.
The match takes place on Wednesday 12 October with a 12pm kick off.
Commenting ahead of the game, Anna Signeul told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "Having seen Israel play I know that the game will be very difficult. They are well organised side and fought very well against a very strong France team.
"The conditions will also be different to what the players will be used to as we will be playing in temperatures approaching 30 degrees. However, we are going to Israel on the back of a thorough preparation and a series of difficult matches that has the team prepared for this match.
"In every position in the team we have quality and we also have competition and that is a sign of how healthy our squad is. The players are pushing each other really hard to improve and that is best exemplified by the standard of the recent performances on the pitch."
17 players have been named for the match and an additional players is to be selected shortly. Joanne Love makes her return to the squad from injury in the only confirmed change from that which played Finland in a double header last month, narrowly losing 1-0 in the first match before recording an emphatic 7-2 victory in the return.
The match will be Scotland's first in Group Four whilst Israel's only game so far has been a 5-0 defeat against group leaders France. Scotland's first home match in the group will be on Thursday 27 October when they host Wales at Tynecastle Stadium.
