A narrow 2-1 defeat to England Lionesses at the Stadium Of Light on Friday saw Pedro Martinez Losa's side suffer their first defeat in seven games but a promising display against the World Cup finalists mean they head back to Hampden Park this week in high spirits.
Goals from Lucy Bronze and Lauren Hemp helped near neighbours England squeeze past Scotland but Kirsty Hanson's strike in first half injury time prompted a dominant in second half performance that pushed one of the world's best sides all the way.
The Tartan Army's excellent form in 2023 saw Spanish head coach Martinez Losa handed a contract extension until 2027 and with his future now tied down, his focus will turn to their Hampden return and the search for three UEFA Nations League points against Belgium.
Pitted against the Lionesses, Belgium and Netherlands in the new look competition, Scotland have no doubt been handed an extremely tough group but following an excellent display in the North East last week, Martinez Losa believes his side can continue their progress over the next five games.
"We wanted to come here to compete and to show that we can play and I think we did that" said the head coach in the aftermath of the 2-1 defeat to the Lionesses.
"It is a privilege to represent Scotland and to be part of this group. I decided to extend the contract because I feel this is my team and this is where my heart is. It is important we all know where we are and we have a clear vision together. It is for the whole country and how we can inspire the nation" added the 50-year-old.
