Macesport could be set to follow two Home Nations teams in Canada, as Scotland Women begin their 2015 World Cup Play-Off campaign with a Semi-Final encounter with the Netherlands.

To book a place at the tournament, Scotland will have to overcome Netherlands and the winner of the other Semi-Final between Italy and Ukraine.

Scotland national coach Anna Signeul believes past Play-Off experience will inspire Scotland when they take on Netherlands next month.

Signeul, said: “We know what to expect in a Play-Off environment, having narrowly missed out in the last two Euro Play-Offs, and I believe those experiences will benefit us as we strive to reach the finals of a major tournament for the first time.

“Fortunately we have also had the opportunity to play against the Netherlands a number of times in recent years, mainly at the Cyprus Women’s Cup.

“We have good record against them at that tournament, winning the last three matches, but we know how tough these upcoming Play-Off matches will be.

“We go in to this Play-Off at the end of a very positive qualifying campaign where we won eight games and only lost to one of the best teams in the world, Sweden.

“The Netherlands have also had a great campaign, only dropping points in a defeat to Norway and a draw to Belgium.

“They are a fast and technical team and have many full-time professionals in their squad playing outside of The Netherlands.

“They have one of the emerging stars of women’s football in their side – Vivianne Miedema – who inspired them to the UEFA Women’s Under-19 Championship title summer.

“She was also joint-top scorer in this qualifying campaign alongside Eniola Aluko of England, Gaetane Thiney of France, and of course, our own Jane Ross.”

Matchdays will take place on 25/26 and 29/40 october, with finalised dates and venues to be confirmed.

The Play-Off Final will take place on 22/23 and 26/27 November, when Scotland will hope to join England at the tournament.
