The draw for the finals of the womens U19 UEFA European Championships has been made in Glasgow.
 
As the host nation, Scotland were represented in the draw, which was conducted by SWNT players Erin Cuthbert and Jo Love.
 
Scotland will open their campaign against France on the 16th July. The young Scots managed to avoid reigning champions Spain, who open their campaign with a mouth-watering tie against England.
 
The full draw is as follows:
 
 
Group A:
 
Scotland
 
Netherlands
 
Norway
 
France
 
 
Group B:
 
England
 
Belgium
 
Spain

Two teams will qualify from each group to compete in the semi-finals, which will be played on the 25th July at Firhill Stadium and St. Mirren Park. The final will take place at St. Mirren Park on the 28th July.
 

Pauline Hamill, Scotland’s Under-19s Head Coach said “We can’t wait to take on the best in Europe this summer. To compete against Netherlands, Norway & France will be a tough test but the squad will be ready, it’s exciting.”

Pauline added “Having the home crowd will give the girls that extra edge. We’ll prepare in the right way, control what we can control and see where it can take us.”

Speaking at the draw, Glasgow City midfielder Jo Love showed her support for the future heroes of the Scotland Women’s National team: “Both Erin and I progressed through the ranks, having represented Scotland at youth level. We never played in front of a home crowd at a major tournament, so this is a huge opportunity for the girls.”

Love continued “All games are tough at any tournament, Pauline has the squad playing well and on their day can compete with the best in Europe. I’m looking forward to seeing Scotland play, particularly Captain Amy Muir who will be a future star of the women’s game.”
