Scotland to play in Pinatar Cup
 Women's Football Scotland International News - 31 Jan 2020
The Scotland Women's National Team will take on Ukraine, Iceland and Northern Ireland in the Pinatar Cup in March this year.
The matches in Spain will act as preparation for the crucial UEFA Women's EURO 2021 qualifiers against Cyprus and Portugal in April.
Scotland will start their time in Pinatar with a match against the 27th ranked team in the world, Ukraine. This will be the first time they have played Ukraine in more than ten years - their last encounter coming in 2008 when Scotland lost 1-0 at McDiarmid Park.
Next up will be a familiar foe in Iceland, whom Scotland have faced four times since 2016, winning two and losing two.
To end the tournament, Scotland will take on former Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels' Northern Ireland side.
Scotland are frequent visitors to the Pinatar Arena and recorded a famous 1-0 victory against Brazil at the venue during preparation for last year's FIFA World Cup.
The matches in Pinatar, which are all against nations much higher up the world rankings than Northern Ireland, will help Shiels' team prepare for their crucial UEFA Women's EURO 2021 qualifier away to Belarus in April.
The away match against Belarus in UEFA Women's EURO 2021 Qualifying Group C is scheduled for 14 April with the return fixture in Belfast on 5th June.
Northern Ireland will then face Faroe Islands at home on 9th June before heading to the Faroes for their final group game on 18th September.
If Shiels' team manage to win their remaining Group C fixtures and group leaders Norway defeat currently second placed Wales twice - away in April and at home in September - then a UEFA Women's EURO 2021 play-off spot for Northern Ireland is a distinct possibility.
The schedule for the tournament is as follows:

Kick-off 6pm (UK time), Pinatar Arena
