Shelley Kerr has named her Scotland squad for this summer's Women's World Cup in France.
Since taking over after Euro 2017, the national coach has called upon over 30 players, but had the task of naming just 23 for next month's tournament.
Lee Alexander has been an ever present between the sticks since Kerr's appointment in 2017. The stopper will face stiff competition from Jenna Fife and Shannon Lynn for the number one jersey as she has done already this year, with both goalkeepers impressing when they've played.
The experienced Rachel Corsie has valuable leadership qualities, having captained her country under Kerr. The centre back is joined by Jennifer Beattie, fresh off the back of lifting the FA Women's Cup with Manchester City, and Kirsty Smith, who enjoyed a successful campaign sealing promotion with Manchester United.
Glasgow City duo Nicola Docherty and Hayley Lauder are among the defensive options, with the former getting a well earned call up having been on the brink of one for some time.
Arsenal's Kim Little scored her 53rd Scotland goal in style, bagging the winner against Brazil earlier this month. She is joined in the midfield department by Liverpool's Christie Murray, and another FA Women's Cup winner in the form of Caroline Weir.
Glasgow City's strong contingent is present in midfield too, with Leanne Crichton and Joanne Love included in Kerr's final squad.
One of the Women's Super League's brightest prospects, Erin Cuthbert, is an unsurprising inclusion in the forward department. The Chelsea striker bagged eight goals and provided five assists, and at just 20 years of age, is one to watch.
Fiona Brown, plying her trade in Sweden with FC Rosengård, and Lana Clelland, in Italy with Fiorentina, also make the 23. Jane Ross is the highest scorer in the squad, with 58 goals in 126 Scotland appearances.
