Scotland Head East

Last updated : 05 April 2004 By Ed_ScottishFitba

Scotland's women A squad are heading off to Crimean town of Simferopol for Saturday's UEFA Qualifying game against Ukraine. This could be the making or breaking of their UEFA campaign. The signs are good as when they played the same team at Livingston last May they won 5-1. Scotland have gained six points from four matches so far and have three home games to follow the Ukraine game. Their target of finishing second to world champions Germany and reaching the UEFA Finals for the first time ever does not seem too ambitious.

The Scotland side features FA Cup finalist Julie Fleeting, while Under 19 star Amy McDonald of Hamilton Accies comes into the A squad for the first time. Ukraine host Scotland at the Tavriya Stadium in Simferopol on Saturday, 10 April with a 3.00 pm kick off. The women leave from Glasgow tomorrow evening (Tuesday) with two stops before they land in the Ukraine (London and Kiev).
