Anna Signeul: On FIFA shortlist for women's world coach of the year

Anna Signeul: On FIFA shortlist for women's world coach of the year

Jane Ross scored a hat-trick and Joanna Love added another as the Group Four leaders stayed perfect on the road to Canada 2015.

The rout followed wins over the Faroe Islands, Bosnia and Northern Ireland and means Anna Signeul's side have scored 20 goals and conceded only two.

Scotland, now six points clear of Sweden, must wait until April for a return to action, hosting Poland in the reverse fixture on 5 April, before travelling to Bosnia five days later.

"We're very happy, it was a fantastic performance from the whole team but especially from Jane Ross, who got her hat-trick," Signeul told Sky Sports News.

Asked if her players felt under pressure to compete with their English counterpart, who are also unbeaten, the former Sweden boss added: "We don't feel any rivalry with England.

"Women's football is developing in lots of different countries and we're delighted we're one of them. England are one of the top countries and that where we want to be."

Signeul, who has been named on the FIFA shortlist for women's world coach of the year, has led Scotland to an all-time high of 20th in the world rankings and twice steered them to the play-offs in European Championships since taking over in 2005.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
