Lisa Evans is the sole Arsenal player called up by Shelley Kerr, the new Scotland manager who has taken over from Anna Signeul.,

Kim Little misses out as she is rehabbing from her long term injury, while there was no mention of Emma Mitchell’s injury as she is left out of the squad.

The 23-player squad will play a friendly in Hungary in preparation for the FIFA 2019 WWC qualifiers that will begin soon.

Shelley Kerr took over from Laura Harvey at Arsenal back in 2013 and ended up managing the transition from semi-professional to full time football in a painful way as a lot of players from the first team and the reserves left the club during this period.

Kerr then tried to rebuild a side with new players and won a total of three cups during her  stint before resigning. She also laid the foundations for a much-needed restructure inside the club in order to compete with the likes of Liverpool and City who had overtaken a stagnant Gunners on and off the pitch.
