It looks as if Scotland's women are following their male counterparts as they are looking to make a play-off if they are to stand a chance of making the UEFA finals. The women are due to play Portugal on Sunday 23 May at Livingston with a kick off. As the opposition are currently bottom of the group it gives Scotland a chance to set themselves up for play-off place if they also win their last game in the group. Scotland beat Portugal 1-8 when they met last summer and another win like that would boost their confidence for the last game in September against the CzechRepublic.
Scotland would also need to win that game to make the play-offs. This may be a tall order as the Czechs are on track to finish in second place in the group. As you knpw, Scotland coach Vera Pauw will be heading home in the autumn to take a new post with the Dutch FA. She has named an unchanged squad from the players who did so well recently in their game against world champions Germany.
