Beattie and Mitchell return for Scotland
 Women's Football Scotland International News - 6 Oct 2017
Shelley Kerr has named her squad for the upcoming double header against Belarus and Albania as the World Cup Qualification campaign kicks off.
Scotland are aiming to reach their first World Cup after recently playing in Euro 2017 over the summer.
Hibernian goalkeeper Jenna Fife is included in the squad for the first time with fellow club mates Rachael Small and Lucy Graham also called up for the second successive squad.
After missing out on Euro 2017 through injury, Jenny Beattie and Emma Mitchell are back involved. Both played in Manchester City's 5-2 win over Arsenal at the weekend where Emma Mitchell scored for the Gunners.
The match against Albania in Paisley is free entry for all supporters with a bumper crowd expected.
Ahead of the matches, Shelley Kerr said: "As a coach you want the games to come thick and fast so to have two matches coming in quick succession is really positive.
"We've gone through our philosophy with the team but we're now ready for the competitive games and picking up points in our group."
On the inclusion of Jenna Fife for the first time, Kerr said: "Jenna has been involved in our national youth squads and the technical and tactical side of her game has really improved over the years.
"She has impressed for Hibernian of late and really deserves her call up."
Kerr also spoke of her delight at Jenny Beattie and Emma Mitchell being available again after recovering from injury.
She said: "Both Jenny and Emma are both really experienced defenders and competing at a very high level, playing in highly competitive matches.
"They've been out injured for a wee while so it's a huge boost to have them back involved for the World Cup qualifiers."
The Belarus match takes place on Thursday 19th October in Minsk (4pm) and Scotland then host Albania at Paisley on Tuesday 24th October (7.30pm).
