Scotland's women take on Greece on Saturday in their penultimate World Cup Qualifying match.
Kicking off at 2pm at the Strathclyde Homes Stadium in Dumbarton, the Scots must get three points to ensure a winner takes all showdown against Denmark four days later.
Never having qualified for the World Cup before, Scotland's women are on the brink of history, as midfielder Megan Sneddon is well aware. "We have had a fantastic qualifying campaign so far," she said. "We agonisingly lost 1-0 to Denmark in our last match, but had a 100% record before that. We need to get back to winning ways to then have it all to play for against Denmark on Wednesday as only the winners of the Group automatically progress through to the play offs for the finals in Germany next summer."
Saturday will also be a special occasion for Megan as she will be presented with her 75th cap which she won against Poland last month. Aged only 24 years old, Sneddon has been the mainstay of the national team her entire senior career and has seen a number of changes in the team. She said: "The biggest change for us has been the influence of Anna Signeul when she came on board as coach. She has helped to change a lot of attitudes to the game at both international and at club level.
"We are all amateur but at my team Glasgow City for example, we train five nights a week. Every player for Scotland puts in a huge amount to their sport to be the best they can be. Fingers crossed it is enough on Saturday for three points. We are desperate to go into the Denmark game with everything to play for."
