Scotland play Belgium in a Tennent's International Challenge Match on Sunday 26 August at McDiarmid Park, kick off 2pm.
The day marks an historic occasion for women's football in Scotland as Pauline Hamill, one of Scotland's most long standing players, will be reaching her greatest football milestone, making her 100th appearance for Scotland.
Brought up in Airdrie, Pauline made her debut against England in 1992 at the age of 20 and currently plays for Hibernian LFC and works as a Football Development Officer for Falkirk Football Club.
To commemorate her achievement there will be a special presentation prior to the match against Belgium.
Pauline Hamill commented on this momentous occasion: "For the first female to get to 100 caps it is a real honour and I can't believe it's me. I am happy to reach my 100 caps. However I am even happier for those who supported me on my journey….my mum, dad and partner and I thank them for helping me along the way. It's been an amazing journey."
Scotland Coach Anna Signeul is extremely proud of Pauline who is highly regarded and has been a player that she can rely on in terms of her commitment, saying: "It is a big personal sacrifice to play for your country as well as working full time, but the players are all committed to playing for their country."
Looking ahead to the match against Belgium, it is part of the squad's preparation for their UEFA Cup Qualification double header away to Slovakia on Saturday 27 October and then home to Denmark (ranked 6th in the world) four days later at McDiarmid Park. Currently Scotland sit joint third in Group 5 with Portugal, behind leaders Ukraine and Slovakia, and Scotland are looking ahead with confidence to their challenging match against Belgium.
