Scotland Women made history after reaching the World Cup finals for the first team following a 2-1 win against Albania.
Kim Little opened the scoring early on before an Albanian equaliser, and it fell to Jane Ross to send her country to the next summer’s finals in France.
Here, Press Association Sport looks at the five key players in their qualifying campaign:
1. Rachael Corsie
Having captained Scotland Under-19s at the UEFA Championship Finals in 2008, 10 years later the Utah Royals centre-back has led her country to the World Cup Finals. With 101 caps to her name, Corsie has become a key figure and leader in Scotland’s side.
2. Erin Cuthbert
Chelsea midfielder Cuthbert has shot to prominence in the Scotland squad with 22 caps at just 20 years old. Cuthbert helped Scotland to qualify with four goals in four games before the Albania clash, scoring the winner against Belarus in July.
3. Kim Little
After missing out on the UEFA Women’s EURO 2017 due to an ACL injury, Arsenal midfielder Little now has the chance on the world’s biggest stage. She scored the opener against Albania and is integral in Scotland’s side, able to operate in a number of positions.
4. Jane Ross
Since making her professional debut for Scotland against England in March 2009, Ross has gone on to score 56 goals in 119 appearances for her national team, making her the leading scorer in the squad. The West Ham striker sealed Scotland’s qualification to the World Cup 2019 with a second half header.
5. Jennifer Beattie
Playing alongside Corsie, Beattie is not only at the heart of Scotland’s defensive work but she also contributes to their attacking play as well, having scored 22 goals for her national side. The daughter of former British Lions rugby union player John Beattie, the Manchester City defender has formed part of a sturdy Scottish defence, which has kept five clean sheets in 2018.
