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.

The West Ham striker sealed Scotland’s qualification to the World Cup 2019 with a second half header.
