Scotland will face Spain at Hampden in the first leg of the UEFA Women's Euro 2013 play-offs.
Anna Signeul's side were first out of Pot 2 during this morning's draw at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, and will take on Spain at Hampden Park on Saturday 20 October (kick off tbc). The second leg will be played on 24 or 25 October, with venue details to be confirmed. The other play-off ties are Ukraine v Iceland and Austria v Russia.
Scotland have not faced Spain at this level for 14 years, and never under the current UEFA tournament format. The last time the two sides met, Spain defeated Scotland in a 1998 play-off to determine which side would move from category two to category one in the then-UEFA ranking system.
Scotland reached the play-offs for Euro 2009, the first time that a Scotland women's team had reached that stage. Anna Signeul's side lost to Russia on away goals, after a 3-2 defeat at Tynecastle and a 2-1 win in Nalchick.
Spain have qualified for the Finals once, reaching the semi finals in 1997. They were defeated 4-0 on aggregate by Holland in the Euro 2009 play-offs.
12 teams will compete at the finals in Sweden next summer - the hosts, the seven group winners (Italy, Germany, Norway, France, Finland, England, Denmark), best runners-up Holland and the winners of the three play-off ties.
