Scotland head coach Shelley Kerr has named a settled squad for the prestigious upcoming friendly match against the USA in Paisley.
Injuries to Kim Little and Sophie Howard mean that Kerr makes two changes to the squad that made history by qualifying for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup back in September.
Glasgow City midfielder Hayler Lauder replaces Little in the playing group after enjoying a rich vein of form in recent months, whilst Hibernian's Joelle Murray takes the place of Howard. The rest of the squad is unchanged from the historic victory in Shkoder, with Jane Ross - scorer of the goal that will see Scotland take their place amongst the world's elite next summer - once again included amongst Kerr's attacking options.
November's fixture will represent the perfect homecoming opportunity for the SWNT, with Scotland supporters able to welcome their side back to Paisley for the first time since their historic qualification.
A number of Kerr's squad have been in scintillating form since their last international outing, with Caroline Weir in particular enjoying a sensational start to the English Women's Premier League season with Manchester City alongside Scotland team mates Claire Emslie and Jen Beattie. City find themselves behind only Arsenal at the top of the standings, with the London side able to call upon SWNT pair Lisa Evans and Emma Mitchell.
Further afield, Lana Clelland will link up with the squad in buoyant mood following her cup winning contribution for Fiorentina, with the striker having set up the decisive goal in the Italian Super Cup final against Juventus.
Ten of the squad were also present for the last meeting between Scotland and the USA, a 3-1 defeat for the SWNT in Nashville back in 2013.
