Arsenal’s Jen Beattie has withdrawn from the Scotland team although it is not clear what the problem is.

The 28-year-old defender was missing from the Arsenal Conti Cup final squad that suffered a tough defeat at the hands of Chelsea on Saturday, despite being the better side for the majority of the game. As the teams were announced Arsenal named only five subs on the bench with Beattie nowhere to be found.

She apparently missed that game because of the concussion she picked up last weekend against Lewes that required a seven-day rest period.

Then, on Sunday morning, the Scottish international tweeted:

Scotland face Ukraine on 4 March in a friendly that is part of the Pinatar Cup taking place at the Pinatar Arena in Spain and Beattie had been named as part of the squad for the mini-tournament.

Arsenal’s Emma Mitchell, currently on loan with Spurs, is in the Scotland squad as is Lisa Evans.
