Northern Ireland’s senior women’s team are set to play two friendlies in July ahead of competing in the inaugural UEFA Women’s Nations League this autumn.
One of the fixtures has still to be confirmed, however it was announced today that Northern Ireland will play Scotland away in an international challenge match on Friday 14 July. The venue and kick-off time have still to be confirmed.
Pedro Martinez Losa’s Scotland team will go into the match off the back of two solid victories against FIFA Women’s World Cup co-hosts Australia and Costa Rica in April.
Northern Ireland, who lost out to Wales in a friendly in April under the guidance of interim boss Andy Waterworth, are expected to have a new permanent manager in place before the fixture in July.
Details of the second friendly in July will be revealed later this month.
The opening two games for Northern Ireland in the inaugural UEFA Women’s Nations League (League B Group 1) will be played in September.
