Chloe Logan has been named to a widely experienced Scottish squad for her Pinatar Cup defence.

This is a first senior call for the Celtic striker, who is one of four goalkeepers in Pedro Martinez Losa’s 26-man squad.

Nine SWPL1 players make the squad, including the division’s top scorer – Rangers’ Lizzie Arnot.

The Scots won the invitational tournament in Spain last year and opened against Wales on February 16.

Matches in the eight-team tournament will serve as a warm-up for April’s World Cup qualifiers with Ukraine and Spain.

Scotland beat Wales 1-0 in a friendly in June 2021 and the winners of their next encounter will face whoever comes out on top between Belgium and Slovakia on February 19. The losers will also face each other on this day.

With the competition split into gold medals and consolation routes, a final match is guaranteed against Hungary, who are also part of the World Cup qualifying group of Scotland, Russia, Poland or the Republic of Ireland. February 22.

Martinez Losa’s side sit second in Group B of the European World Cup qualifiers, five points behind Spain. Ukraine are six points behind Scotland but one game less in the hunt for second place in the play-offs.

Eartha Cumings, Logan’s goalkeeper from Charlton, is called up again and is one of three players not capped, with Celtic defender Kelly Clark also awaiting a first senior appearance in Scotland.

At the other end of the experience scale, Centurions Jen Beattie (136), Captain Rachel Corsie (128) and Jane Ross (141) can add to their impressive list of selections.
