Weir, Evans earn Scotland Women recalls

Caroline Weir and Lisa Evans have recovered from injury and been named in the Scotland Women squad for their World Cup qualifier against Hungary and friendly against Sweden.

Weir and Evans missed Scotland’s opening qualification matches back in September but have proved their fitness and earned a recall.

Scotland will be keen to build on their two wins during the September cycle of matches, following a 2-0 victory in Hungary and a 7-1 win against the Faroe Islands.

Head coach Pedro Martinez Losa has named a 24-woman squad, ahead of the games which will be played later this month at Glasgow’s Hampden Park on October 22 and St Mirren’s Paisley 2021 Stadium on October 26.

Martha Thomas misses out on selection through injury, however Jenna Clark, fresh from scoring at Hampden Park against the Faroe Islands, is again included, along with the recalled Amy Muir.

There is also plenty of Women’s Super League representation within Scotland’s ranks.

Arsenal’s Jenny Beattie, Manchester United’s Kirsty Hanson, and Erin Cuthbert of Chelsea have all been named alongside Manchester City’s Weir and West Ham’s Evans.
