Following the release of the draw for the World Cup qualifying groups this week, the reaction has largely been a favourable one for the home countries.
"Generally, it's a very good draw for us," said England midfielder Jill Scott. "We have memories of Spain from last time and they should be tough but we can't complain about the other teams in the group.
"We shouldn't really fear anybody at the moment and whichever team we come up against, we will be confident."
Scotland's Kim Little was satisfied with the draw overall: "Being seeded second, we knew we would get a team from a higher level than us but we have played Denmark before in the Euros.
"It's a tough draw but we will be looking to get results and push Denmark as far as possible. Denmark are a good footballing team but we have got experience of them and know what to expect."
The hardest draw has undoubtedly gone to Wales but midfielder Jessica Fishlock was looking on the positive side. "I think we've got a pretty hard group and a long trip to Azerbaijan!" she laughed. "Let's hope we can pick up some points in this group, I think we can from them all and Sweden will be a great challenge. We just have to stop the mistakes and be more ruthless, but I think we can look on the bright side. We wanted to draw England but there are some good teams here."
