Rangers midfielder Megan Sneddon has been added to the players who make up the squad who were involved in the double-header against the USA in a earlier this month.  Defenders Rachel Corsie and Ifeoma Dieke both remain unavailable for selection for the sixth event in Cyprus due to long-term knee injuries. The Cyprus Women's Cup, organised by Scotland, England and The Netherlands in partnership with Cyprus Tourism Organisation and Erinor Tours, has established itself as an important event in the football calendar. Initiated in 2008 with six teams, it has now doubled in size to include 12 teams in three groups.
