Head Coach Kerr said: “Playing at Tynecastle in June will be a special occasion as it’s a stadium we’ve not played in for some time and the club have shown a real appetite to be engage with women’s football having recently hosted a well attended SSE Scottish Women’s Cup Final.

“We achieved our largest competitive crowd last year, in Edinburgh, and we’re hopeful of another large turnout for the Albania match.

“Our Euro 2021 campaign has started well but there is a long way to go and we’ll need the Scottish public behind us if we are to achieve our goal of reaching our third consecutive tournament in a row.”

Scotland currently sit second in Group with two wins from two and are four points behind leaders Finalnd, who have played two more games.

Ticket details will be announced in due course.
