That this House congratulates the Scottish National Women's Football team on their unprecedented win over Brazil; acknowledges that this is the first time that a Scottish senior national side has defeated that iconic footballing nation; commends both Head Coach Shelley Kerr on her outstanding coaching ability, and Rachel Corsie on her incredible team leadership, the combination of which has led to an already capable group of players being developed into a world-beating side; is not surprised by this success following the deeply impressive recent visit by Shelley to the APPG on Scottish Sport; hopes that the team are sent off in rousing fashion with a full house at Hampden Park when they play their final warm-up match against Jamaica on 28 May; and wishes the team the best of luck in their upcoming World Cup Campaign; particularly in their opening game on 9 June against England.
