Scotland: Pedro Martinez

Scotland boss Pedro Martinez is relishing taking charge of Scotland in their World Cup qualifying clash against Spain. He will take charge of his first game against Hungary before facing the Faroe Islands. They will then play the remaining two teams in their group, Spain and Ukraine with the winners of the group qualifying directly for the World Cup while the second team will earn a playoff spot. Pedro Martinez has taken charge of Rayo Vallecano, Arsenal Women, and Bordeaux Women in the past.

“The most exciting thing for me is to create the identity of this team, to connect with the players, the staff and make the most of the team and the performances, to create something really special for Scotland,” Pedro Martinez said. “But of course, I am Spanish and when we play against Spain I will have the extra motivation of course to beat them and prove what Scotland can do. We cannot say one game is more important than others. By the time we play Spain, we will love to be in the position to compete for the first position with them.”

“We have to go game by game. We will try to aim for the first position,” he added. “We are aware that first position is difficult but only if you dream and work for the first position, maybe you get the second but if you aim for a second you maybe get third so will aim to win every match and will recap after every match. Let’s try to be first and if we are just second at the end, we will deal with that.”
