Scotland to play Germany and Iceland
 Women's Football News 9 Apr 2013
 
Scotland to play Germany and Iceland - 9 Apr 2013 - Women's Football NewsScotland will face Europe's top ranked nation, Germany, in a friendly international this summer. 
 
Following Sunday's 2-1 win over Wales, Anna Signeul's side will step up preparations for the FIFA World Cup Canada 2015 qualifiers later this year with an away double header in June.
 
Scotland will face Iceland at the national stadium in Reykjavík on Saturday 1 June, followed by double FIFA Women's World Cup and seven-time UEFA Women's Euro champions Germany in Essen - the home ground of Scotland international Emma Mitchell - two weeks later.
 
The draw for the 2015 World Cup qualifiers will take place on 16 April.
 
Anna Signeul said: "These will be two very tough, but exciting matches. To continue our progression, we must test ourselves against the best opposition, and it doesn't come much more challenging than an away match against Germany.
 
"We have already faced world number one side USA earlier this year, and the players are looking forward to the prospect of playing against the top ranked nation in Europe.
 
"Iceland will also be tough opponents. We know how physically and technically strong they are, after our 1-1 draw in Greenock last August.
 
"Iceland and Germany are preparing for the UEFA Women's Euro finals in July, and I think it says a great deal about our progression that these teams view a match against Scotland as a good test ahead of a major tournament.
 
"We have now reached our highest ever ranking position of 12 in Europe and 21 in the world. We have shown with our recent perfromances, and wins over sides like Italy and The Netherlands, that we are getting stronger all the time and can compete with the best teams in the women's game."
 
Scotland last faced Germany in the qualifiers for the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup, which Germany went on to win. Germany recorded 4-0 and 5-0 wins in October 2005 and September 2006.
 
The last meeting with Iceland was a 1-1 draw in a Vauxhall International Challenge Match at Cappielow Park, Greenock, in August 2012. Emma Mitchell was the Scotland goal scorer.
 
Scotland have played seven friendly matches so far this year. They were defeated 4-1 and 3-1 by Olympic champions and world number one side USA in February, before heading to the annual Cyprus Women's Cup the following month.
 
They lost their opening match against New Zealand 1-0, and followed this up with a 4-4 draw with England, a 2-1 win over Italy and a 1-0 win over Holland. They defeated Wales 2-1 in their first home match of 2013 at East End Park, Dunfermline.
