Training day

Scotland Women prepare for play-off match at Tynecastle.


Scotland Women have trained at Tynecastle ahead of their crunch World Cup semi-final playoff against The Netherlands.

Anna Signeul’s side got to grips with the home of the Jam Tarts this morning, before the National side do battle on the Tynecastle turf against the Dutch on Saturday.

Speaking earlier, Anna said: “We absolutely love to come back here. I think it’s a great stadium. We have lots of good memories and a good feeling about this stadium.

“It would mean so much to get a big crowd. I think that if we could get a good crowd behind the players then these players will not get nervous, it’s the opposite; the more people that’s watching them then the more they will run and fight to win the game.

“Really, the spectators behind the team is like the old cliché; the ‘12th woman’. I really hope that we can fill at least the Main Stand.”

Kick-off is 5.30pm on Saturday and tickets are available to buy at the Hearts Ticket Centre on McLeod Street, open 9am-4pm on Saturday, with cash gates open on the night from 4.30pm.
