Scotland Captain Rachel Corsie will return from injury and be available to play two matches against New Zealand.

She will be joined by uncapped Abbi Grant who has been named in the squad.

The 22-year-old striker has been in impressive form for Glasgow City of late and has been rewarded by Shelley Kerr.

Grant has represented Scotland at under-15s, under-17s and under-19s level.

Zoe Ness is also in line for her first cap with Lucy Graham returning to the squad. Rachael Small and Lana Clelland both miss out through injury.

The two matches against New Zealand will act as preparation for Scotland as they aim to reach their first ever World Cup, having won their opening two fixtures.

Their next competitive match is on Thursday, 5 April against Switzerland away from home before they play Poland in Scotland five days later.

This will be the second time this year the national team has visited Spain after the team lost to Norway and drew with Russia in January in La Manga.
