Cuthbert determined to help Scotland bounce back

Erin Cuthbert is determined to help Scotland bounce back from their UEFA Women's Nations League defeat by the Netherlands after declaring herself fit for the return match at Hampden.

The Chelsea midfielder missed Friday's 4-0 loss with a quad injury but trained at Hampden on Monday evening and is keen to feature on Tuesday.

Cuthbert missed last month's camp with a separate injury as Scotland drew with Belgium after suffering a narrow defeat against England in Sunderland.

The 25-year-old said: "It's been difficult, I have not enjoyed watching it from the TV. It makes it more difficult when the team are maybe not in a great moment.

"They played so well against England and I loved watching that performance. I was kicking every ball, I was desperate to play.

"When you are away, you appreciate it so much more."

Scotland's midfield was also missing Bayern Munich's Sam Kerr plus Caroline Weir and Emma Watson - who both suffered cruciate ligament damage on international duty in September.
