So we got Finland, Portugal, Albania and Cyrpus.

A pretty tough draw. Finland aren't one of the better sides in Pot 2, they didn't have a great World Cup qualifying campaign, but they're managed by ex-Scotland boss Anna Signeul who will know exactly how to play us. Portugal are arguably the best team in Pot 3, again they didn't have a great World Cup qualifying campaign though they weren't far behind, but they qualified for the last European Championships where they beat us 2-1. They only lost 2-1 to England, too. I don't know how much churn they've had in their squad since then, though.

Albania we know, and we should beat even if it was a close-run thing there last year. Cyprus are a bit of an unknown quantity, this is the first time they've entered qualification for some time, possibly ever. But their best club side, Somatia Barcelona, beat Glasgow City 1-0 in the second leg of a Champions League Round of 32 tie at Petershill last year, with Glasgow squeeking through 2-1 on aggregate.

We avoided the 4-5 better sides in Pot 2, but this is still a fairly difficult group.

First game vs Cyprus at Easter Road on Friday 30th August

Great venue. Nothing against St Mirren but you want somewhere you can maximise the potential for walk-ups.
