Women’s International Challenge Match
Cameroon v Scotland
Sunday 15th July 2012, kick-off 3pm
Chris Anderson Stadium, Aberdeen Sports Village
Scotland midfielder Megan Sneddon expects a tough test on Sunday against Cameroon at the Aberdeen Sports Village.
The Celtic Ladies star is on an international high after making her 100th appearance in a vital 1-0 over Republic of Ireland in a UEFA European Championship Qualifier last month.
And the 26-year-old can’t wait to meet up with the A squad on Saturday.
“It’s always great to meet up with the squad and this time there will be some new faces as some of the players are away playing for Team GB,” she said.
“Friendlies are always good to learn players’ style and are good opportunities to get to know new players better.”
This will be the first time the women’s team have played in Aberdeen and Megan said she is looking forward to playing in a part of the country where passion for the national team is in abundance.
“Playing in Aberdeen is fantastic because we know how much support there is for the national team in the North East of Scotland,” Megan said.
“The Aberdeen Sports Village is a top-class facility which I am looking forward to training and playing in.”
Cameroon are using the Granite City as their base for the Olympic Games and will be difficult opposition for the Scots.
Megan, recently recovered from a heavy cold, said: “They beat Northern Ireland 2-0 in their last match and, by all accounts, dominated it so I think we will be in for a testing game.”
Reflecting on her last match against the Republic of Ireland, Megan said: “I was delighted with that 1-0 win as it was a must-win match.
“We dominated large spells of the match but came under huge pressure and had to defend well.”
The Cameroon game is part of the Scots’ preparations for the UEFA European Championship Qualifier against Wales in September.
“We are quietly confident about the Wales match but I know it will be an incredibly hard-fought battle as they still have a chance of making the play-off spot too.
“Playing British teams is always difficult.”
