The team will take on Scotland on Sunday 5th Feb, in an International Challenge Match as part of their preparations for this month’s UEFA Euro 2013 qualifier away to Belgium.

Northern Ireland currently sit 3rd in the Group 3 qualifying table with seven points from four games (and a game in hand over the top two sides).  In a group involving Iceland, Belgium, Bulgaria, Hungary and Norway, the girls have made a great start to their campaign.

The friendly match against Scotland will be played at Solitude, kick-off 2pm. The Euro 2013 qualifier against Belgium will be played on Wednesday 15 February, kick-off 8pm.

Everyone at Sunderland WFC would like to wish Rachel and Sarah the best of Luck in both games.
