Last month Anna Signeul’s Scotland team brought women’s football to the forefront of people’s mind when they made their debut at a major finals and this week it is the turn of the Under-19s to play at the European Championships.

Making their first appearance at the annual tournament since 2014, Scotland qualified after beating Republic of Ireland, Finland and Ukraine in the Elite Round to secure their progression.

The Under-19s European Championships started on Tuesday, 8 August with Scotland kicking off against Germany who have lifted the trophy four times and they lost 3-0.

They will also take on hosts Northern Ireland and Spain.

The last time Scotland played in the tournament three years ago they defeated Belgium in the group stages but lost to Netherlands and Norway, unable to qualify to the latter stages.

Group A: Northern Ireland (hosts), Germany, Scotland, Spain

Europe has four berths in the tournament to be played in France from 7-28 August next year, with the hosts already assured of a place.

The four semi-finalists all qualify; if France are among that number there will be a play-off between the two third-place teams (from either group) in Ballymena on 17 August.
