Scotland to take on Russia
 Women's Football News 7 Oct 2008
Scotland to take on Russia - 7 Oct 2008 - Women's Football NewsScotland will face Russia in the play-offs for the UEFA Women's Championship finals in Finland next year. 
Igor Shalimov's side travel to Scotland for the first leg on Sunday 26th October, with the second leg in Russia on Thursday 30th.
Russia, ranked 8th in Europe and 15th in the world, finished in second place and entered the play-offs after a 0-0 draw with Group Six winners Norway. Scotland, currently ranked 15th and 26th, finished third in Group Five after a 6-0 home win over Slovakia, and have reached the play-offs of a major tournament for the first time in their history.
Scotland Head Coach Anna Signeul told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "I travelled to Russia for their final group game against Norway, and I saw a very good side - in fact they were unlucky not to win the game. This is arguably the most difficult draw we could have been handed, but nothing is impossible, we have produced some excellent performances recently and we know that we definitely have a chance against Russia.
"We will certainly be up for it and will give everything over the two legs to secure a place at the finals in Finland."
The other ties decided at today's draw in Nyon, Switzerland, were Republic of Ireland v Iceland, Czech Republic v Italy, Slovenia v Ukraine and Spain v Netherlands. The two-legged play-offs will be played on 25/26th and 29/30th October.
Group winners England, Sweden, France, Denmark, Norway and Germany have already booked their places in next year's finals alongside hosts Finland. The five play-off winners join those seven qualifiers in the finals draw in Helsinki on 18th November.
