Mitchell is believed to have a week to prove her fitness before joining up with the squad, however, which currently has 22 of the 23 players named. The full squad is as follows:

There are three former Gunners in the squad with Vaila Barsley, Carolien Weir and Christie Murray all selected by Anna Signeul. Qualifying for the quarter-finals will be a tough ask for Scotland with so many important players missing.

Scotland are placed in Group D and will play England on July 19 in Utrecht. They play Portugal in Rotterdam four days later and will complete their group games with a game in Deventer against Spain on the 27th.

The top-two teams from the Group will go through to the quarter finals and play either the winner or runner-up from Group C, which means France, Austria, Iceland or Switzerland.
