Scotland’s relegation a learning moment – Pedro Martinez

Head coach Pedro Martinez Losa describes Scotland’s descent to Women’s Nations League B as “a learning moment.”

Scotland’s placement at the bottom of Group A1 was sealed with a 1-1 draw against Belgium on Friday, with one more game against England scheduled for Tuesday.

ُScotland Women’s boss, Pedro Martinez, said: “What we want is to qualify for the Euros – now we need to pick up another route.

“We have a very young group. We have been living good moments and bad moments on and off the pitch.

“It’s a moment of learning. It’s a moment to be ready for the next challenge that’s coming up.

Furthermore, Pedro Martinez added: “I think it was a very competitive game as we have seen in all the Nations League games I think we did more than enough to win this game. That’s football. Belgium is a very good team. Scotland showed a little more [than them].

“We have to keep going and We have an important game on Tuesday. We have to recharge the batteries,” Martinez said.

Hayley Lauder, returning after a three-year absence from the side, came on as a substitute in Leuven.

She said: “Result aside, it is amazing to be back. I started to think it wouldn’t happen.

“Glasgow City kept me going and believing. I want to help, not just go away with the team,I have to thank.”

“For big spells of the game we were in it. We created a lot of opportunities but that final touch and final pass let us down. Ultimately, it’s disappointing.

“This is what we need to show every game and the game on Tuesday night means a lot to us.”
