Captain Rachel Corsie is aiming for maximum points from Scotland’s first two qualifying matches for the 2023 World Cup.
Under new head coach Pedro Martinez Losa, the Scots begin their campaign in Hungary on Friday before hosting the Faroe Islands next Tuesday.
And Corsie knows it’s important to get off to a quick start before meeting the top seeds Spain and Ukraine.
“If we’re being honest we think in both games we have to take six points,” said the defender.
“If we take anything less than that it is of course mathematically not a disaster, but given the expectations we place on each other and the standards we feel we should have, then six points are what we have to aim and make sure we get.
“We think we are in a position where we have a great chance and that is largely because we believe in each other and believe in the process and find a way to get the results that we will need.
“But also, Ukraine will certainly be difficult, as will Hungary, especially far from home.”
“It’s amazing to play at the national stadium”
Scotland lost Caroline Weir, Lisa Evans and Lucy Graham of Martinez Losa’s first team, with Lizzie Arnott, Rachel Boyle and uncapped Glasgow City defender Jenna Clark called up as replacements.
Arsenal skipper Kim Little retired from international football at the age of 31 after 140 appearances and 59 goals.
Corsie is also looking forward to playing at Hampden and believes that the national stadium is his home or that this campaign sends a “really huge message”.
“The way people view the game is going to grow massively and that will naturally attract more fans,” added the Kansas City skipper.
“We already have a lot of support behind us, but taking advantage and experiencing that at Hampden in this campaign will be a big factor in ensuring we get the results we think we can get.
“It’s amazing to play at the national stadium. It sends a really huge message and I really believe the country will support us.”
