Pedro Martinez Losa has named a strong 22 women squad for Scotland’s upcoming friendlies next month.

The SWNT will play Northern Ireland and Finland on July 14 and 18 as they prepare for their inaugural Nations League campaign.

Chelsea’s Erin Cuthbert and captain Rachel Corsie, from Aston Villa, both return after missing the last squad in April through injury.

Top stars including Real Madrid’s Caroline Weir, Bayern Munich’s Sam Kerr, Angel City’s Claire Emslie, Liverpool’s Eartha Cummings and Manchester United pair Kirsty Hanson and Martha Thomas are again included.

Eight SWPL players are also included with six from Rangers and two from Scottish champions Glasgow City.

Teenage Rangers forward Emma Watson, who scored a double in her debut in April, is joined by club teammates Jenna Fife, Nicola Docherty, Rachel McLauchlan, Kirsty McLean and Brogan Hay with City stars Lee Gibson and Jenna Clark joining them.

McLean and London City player Amy Rodgers are the only two new faces brought into the squad for the first time.

Scotland are coming off the back of two impressive victories in April when they defeated World Cup hosts Australia 1-0 in London before a convincing 4-0 win over Costa Rica at Hampden.

However Losa’s side will be missing from this summer’s World Cup after a heartbreaking playoff defeat to Ireland last year.
