Anna names squad for play-off clash
 Women's Football News 9 Oct 2012
Anna names squad for play-off clash - 9 Oct 2012 - Women's Football NewsScotland national coach Anna Signeul has announced her squad for the UEFA Women's Euro 2013 play-off matches against Spain.

Scotland will play the home leg at Hampden Park on Saturday 20 October (2pm) - the first time the women's squad has played at the national stadium. Entry to the home leg is free of charge.
The return match will be played on Wednesday 24 October (6pm) at the Pabellón de la Ciudad del Fútbol 1, Madrid.

Scotland have reached the play-offs for the second Euro campaign in a row, after losing out to Russia on away goals four years ago.

Anna said: "We've made great strides in terms of growing the women's game in Scotland, and I genuinely believe that success breeds interest.

"We've had a good level of success over the past few years, but now we have an opportunity to qualify for the finals of a major tournament for the first time.
"If we get to the UEFA Women's Euro finals in Sweden next year, I believe it would be massive for the women's game in this country, in terms of interest from potential young players, from the general public and the media.

"This is the first time that the women's national team has played at Hampden Park, and I think it will be a great occasion. It's a fantastic opportunity to showcase the women's game at the national stadium.

"The match is free entry, partly as a thank you to the fans who have followed us over the years, but also to encourage people who haven't watched us before to come along.

"There is always a great family atmosphere at our matches, and the backing that we have received so far has been tremendous.
"It may be a bit of a cliché, but supporters really can be the twelfth player, particularly in crucial matches like this.
"Spain are a very good side, they are technically gifted. We will need to be at the top of our game to defeat them, and with the backing of the Tartan Army, we will have every chance."
