Three years ago, Caroline Weir’s dream came true when she was called up for her country to take on Iceland in Reykjavik.
Scotland won 3-2 that day and the 20-year-old is desperate to recreate the victory following qualification for the Euros in 2017.
Although history has been made with a spot in the competition in Holland secured next year, Weir wants Scotland to end the campaign on a high after coming a long way since her first cap, playing 25 times for her country.
Reflecting on her debut in Iceland, Caroline spoke exclusively to Scottish FA’s Michael Lamont and said: “I made my debut three years ago against Iceland when I was 17. I was a late call-up in place of Kim Little and was on the bench for the game but didn’t expect to come on.
“I then played 20 minutes which was a great experience and we won 3-2 as well.
“I’ve got good memories of Iceland as that trip spurred me to continue to push on and achieve.”
And progress she has with the woman from Dunfermline joining Liverpool Ladies this year.
Playing regularly and impressing week in week out, Weir is enjoying life.
“Liverpool is a huge club and I’m delighted to be playing there at the moment,” she said.
“It’s a good set-up and we’re seen as equal to the men so we get to do some stuff with the first team too.
“Liverpool itself is quite a small place so you learn pretty quickly what the club means to the city.
“At the moment we’re sitting fourth in the league with three games to go.
“Our manager brought in some new players so we’ve built over the course of the season. It’ll be interesting to see where we end up.”
On Friday it was confirmed that Scotland have completed their goal of qualifying, but for Weir the job isn’t finished yet and she’s determined to defeat Iceland after they beat Scotland 4-0 earlier this year in Falkirk.
“The game at home was difficult for us and we didn’t expect such a result but we’ve learnt from that.
“The stadium looks good and the pitch will suit us. They’re expecting a big crowd which is exciting and we’re hoping for a win.
“It was a weird moment when we found out we’d qualified as we hadn’t played a game but we’ll take it and look forward to taking on Iceland with less pressure. Hopefully we can go out and enjoy it.”
