A First For Her Indoors

Last updated : 06 March 2004 By Ed_ScottishFitba

Scotland's women footballers will make history next week when they play Iceland indoors for the first time in the new Egilshollin arena in Reykjavik. Egilshollin is one of several indoor stadia in Iceland with a full size pitch, allowing football to continue in Iceland through the winter months. This is the first time, however, it has been used for an international match.

Scotland coach Vera Pauw has made just one change to the squad which played in France recently, with Suzanne Grant coming back in place of Holly Anderson. She will be hoping for an encouraging result in Scotland's last friendly before the vital UEFA qualifier in Ukraine on 10 April. Once again Hibs players dominate the squad with ten representatives named. The ten plan an early return on on Sunday morning, in time to support their club's men's team at Hampden in the CIS Cup Final.
