Scotland World Cup qualifying campaign so far

The Scots have it all still to play for and are fighting it out for a play-off spot with Hungary and Ukraine. Spain are already confirmed group winners.

While Scotland lie a point clear of the Hungarians with two games to go, Ukraine, due to their matches being postponed because of the ongoing invasion in the country, have two games in hand as they look to close the six-point deficit.

Led by captain Rachel Corsie and stars like Caroline Weir and Erin Cuthbert, they’ll be hoping to make it two World Cup Finals in a row after their historic first appearance at France 2019.

The Scots won their opening two matches of the qualifying campaign 2-0 away to Hungary and 7-1 at home to the Faroe Islands in September 2021.

They then made it three wins from three with a 2-1 home win over Hungary in October.

They remained undefeated in November after drawing 1-1 at home to Ukraine but suffered a crushing defeat as group winners Spain beat them 8-0 in Seville.

After featuring in the Pinatar Cup earlier this year against Wales, Slovakia and Hungary they returned to World Cup qualifying with a 2-0 home defeat to Spain.

Their final match of the qualifying campaign is due to take place on September 6 away to the Faroe Islands.
