Scotland have been drawn alongside England, Spain and Portugal at Euro 2017.

The draw which was made in Rotterdam on Tuesday afternoon, has provided Scotland with a derby against England in the opening game of the group in Utrecht.

Following the draw, Anna Signeul said: “This is a great draw in terms of media attention and getting more people interested in the competition.

“To open our campaign against England is a big challenge. They are very good and have excellent players. 

“Any team from pot 1 would have been tough and it’ll be motivating for the players to be drawn against our rivals.

“A lot of our players play in England and will be playing against their friends so that’ll be interesting.

“We’ll be underdogs but we can’t wait.

“Portugal are an up and coming side. We drew against them two years ago but it’ll be a match we’ll be targeting to win.

“Spain beat us in the play-offs a few years ago which was tough to take so we’ll be determined to get a positive result against them.

“It’s very exciting now the draw has been made and I hope the supporters travel in their numbers to support us, as I’m sure they will.”
