Pedro Martinez Losa has named his Scotland squad for the upcoming Women’s Nations League double header against the Netherlands.

The national team have one point from their opening two games in a tough group that also includes England and Belgium.

They fell to a narrow 2-1 defeat to the Lionesses in Sunderland before snatching a point with a last minute goal against the Belgians at Hampden.

It will be back-to-back games against the Netherlands up next with a trip to Nijmegen on October 27 first up before the return tie in Glasgow on Halloween.

Star player Caroline Weir misses out after being injured in the draw with Belgium last month, but Chelsea’s Erin Cuthbert returns to the fold after missing the opening two games.

Captain Rachel Corsie will lead the side again with Celtic forward Amy Gallacher also included after making her debut in September.

Ten players from the SWPL have been called with six from Rangers, including captain Kathryn Hill and two from Glasgow City, including goalkeeper Lee Gibson.

Hoops star Jenny Smith has been included for the first time.

Manchester City goalkeeper Sandy MacIver has been included after switching allegiance from England.

The 25-year-old won her sole England cap to date in a friendly against Northern Ireland in February 2021.

Having withdrawn from the Lionesses’ squad in April, MacIver then announced she was making herself “unavailable for England selection moving forward”, adding that her focus was on her rehabilitation.

Hill and Jenna Clark also return to a squad missing Emma Watson and Sam Kerr.
