Scotland look to build on feel-good factor
 Women's Football News 26 Mar 2014
 
Scotland look to build on feel-good factor - 26 Mar 2014 - Women's Football NewsScotland women's national coach, Anna Signeul, senses a feel-good factor around the national teams, as she announces her squad for another crucial FIFA Women's World Cup qualifying double-header.
 
Scotland currently sit top of Group 4 with maximum points from their first four games. The squad goes in to the matches against Poland and Bosnia on the back of a successful Cyprus Women's Cup, in which Scotland were unbeaten against France, The Netherlands and Australia, only losing on penalties to Korea Republic in the final placing match.
 
The Poland match will be played at Fir Park, Motherwell on Saturday 5th April (5.30pm) and the match will also be shown live on BBC ALBA. Scotland then travel to Bosnia-Herzegovina to play their next game five days later at Bilino Polje, Zenica.
 
Anna insists that the positivity around the national teams is very much by design. She told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "Yes, there is a lot of positivity around the national squads at the moment. We have recorded some very good results recently, as have the men's squad.
 
"Our women's under-17s reached the Euro finals in November and the under-16s won the Victory Shield. All of the women's and men's youth squads have been playing well and winning matches, including the under-17s in their first elite round qualifier last night.
 
"That is down to a lot of hard work by the coaches and national team staff, but the investment in the performance strategy has been crucial.
 
"In terms of the women's national teams, we now have a bigger programme of training camps and matches. Keeping up this level of intensity has been very important for our development at all age groups.
 
"A key benefit for the senior women's squad has been our partnership with the Scottish Institute of Sport, which has transformed our strength and conditioning training and led to the players becoming fitter than ever."
 
Scotland go into their next two qualifiers looking to stay ahead of group favourites, Sweden, who are currently three points behind Scotland, with a game in hand.
 
Anna said: "We defeated both Poland and Bosnia in the first half of the campaign, so we have an idea of what we will be up against. We will be prepared for two very tough matches. Bosnia lost only one goal, a penalty, when they hosted Sweden so we know it will be a difficult place to go to, but we need to focus on keeping our momentum going."
