Scotland Women will host world champions USA for the first time as they step up their preparations for next year’s World Cup.

Shelley Kerr’s side take on the four-time Olympic champions at St Mirren on November 17.

The match is an opportunity for fans to celebrate the achievement of Kerr’s side after last month’s 2-1 win over Albania in Shkoder saw Scotland qualify for the Women’s World Cup for the first time.

Paisley has been a happy hunting ground in recent times, a record crowd of 4098 having roared Scotland Women to a crucial qualifying win over Switzerland in August.

The USA are the most successful team in women’s World Cup history, having claimed the 1991 and 1999 titles in addition to their triumph in 2015.

November’s fixture will mark the first meeting of the two sides since February 2013, when goals from Megan Rapinoe, Abby Wambach and Christen Press saw the US take a 3-1 victory in Nashville.
