Scotland name Under-19 Finals squad
 Women's Football News 7 Jul 2014
Gareth Evans has announced his squad for next week's UEFA Women's Under-19 Championships in Norway. 
Scotland qualified for the finals as the highest scoring nation, with 38 goals in six qualifiers - 13 more than any other side. They topped their first qualifying round group ahead of Romania, FYR Macedonia and Georgia, and sealed their finals place with elite round wins over Iceland, Croatia and Russia.
This is Scotland's fourth appearance at the UEFA Women's Under-19 Finals, having previously qualified in 2005, 2008, and 2010.
The national coach is looking forward to the tournament, but was keen to emphasise his sadness that Megan Karagiozis could not return to full fitness before the team departs on Friday.
Gareth told the Scottish FA website: "Megan has been struggling with an ankle injury and has had to pull out of the squad. It is such a shame for her and the team but we'll have to stick together and ensure that everyone in the squad plays to the best of their abilities.
"It is a good experience for the rest of the squad, however. It has been four years since the last time Scotland qualified for this tournament, so this group will embrace and enjoy the experience."
Scotland have been drawn against Belgium, Holland and host nation Norway in Group A, and Gareth believes that each time will provide a stern test for Scotland.
"Belgium knocked out Germany in the elite round - something which is effectively unimaginable in women's football - so they'll undoubtedly be full of confidence," added Evans.
"The Netherlands are an exceptional team and Norway, as host nation with a long history of success in the sport, will be very difficult to beat."
Scotland face Belgium on Tuesday 15th July in Strommen, before playing the Netherlands on Friday 18th July in Jessheim and hosts Norway the following Monday in Sarpsborg.
