Twin Targets For Scottish Youngsters

Last updated : 12 July 2005 By Ed_Scottishfitba

Scotland's Women’s Under 19 Coach, Tony Gervaise, is setting out the final preparations for his squad in the run up to the 4th UEFA Women's Under 19 Championship. This is the first time Scotland has qualified for this stage of the competition. Gervaise has high hopes for the squad after their successful performances in the previous two qualifying tournaments - scoring 33 goals with only a single strike in reply. The squad will be travelling to Hungary in the near future for the last minute adjustments that are always required before a tournament.

Gervaise said "
Scotland have been drawn in a Group B with England, France and Russia. This is a very tough group but we are looking forward to this challenge with confidence. It will be an excellent opportunity for our players to develop and gain experience on this challenging and high profile European stage."

The fixtures are:-
Scotland v England
20th July - 7.30 pm
Zalaegerszeg, Hungary

France v Scotland
22nd July, 5 pm
Andrashida, Hungary

Russia v Scotland
25th July, 5 pm
Andrashida, Hungary

Semi-finals take place on the 29th July and the Final is in Zalaergerszeg on 31st July (Live on Eurosport)

This Championship is important to the young women as it also serves as the European qualifying competition for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Championships to be played in Russia in 2006.
