For the first time Scotland are vying to qualify for the finals of a major championship – Anna Signeul’s squad will take on Norway, who reached the last 16 of this year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup, five days before their opening qualifier in Slovenia.
Ahead of her first match at Firhill, Anna Signeul said:
“This is a very exciting fixture to round off our Euro preparations. Norway are ranked 10th in the world, and are going in to their own qualifying campaign on the back of a last 16 finish at the World Cup.
“This match will provide a tough test for us ahead of the opening qualifier and an exciting prospect for Scotland supporters as we embark on a new campaign.
“I’m looking forward to taking the squad to Firhill for the first time, and our thanks go to Partick Thistle for hosting us.”
for the first time, after reaching the play-offs for the past two Euro campaigns, and sealing a first ever World Cup play-off place last year.
As the second ranked side in Group 1, they will face Iceland, Belarus, Slovenia and FYR Macedonia in their bid to seal a place at the finals in The Netherlands in 2017.
Their opening Euro 2017 qualifier will be against Slovenia on the 22nd, September.
