Love to captain Scotland as Corsie needs knee operation

From BBC - January 14, 2018

Glasgow City midfielder Jo Love will captain Scotland women in their two forthcoming friendlies in Spain after Rachel Corsie's withdrawal.

Defender Corsie, who plays for Seattle Reign, is to have an exploratory operation on a knee problem.

She will miss matches against Norway on Friday, 19 January and Russia on Monday, 22 January.

But boss Shelley Kerr hopes Corsie will be back in time for two friendlies against New Zealand in March.

The matches will help Scotland prepare for their next two 2019 World Cup qualifiers - against group leaders Switzerland (away) and Poland (home) in April.

With vice-captain Kim Little still recovering from an anterior cruciate ligament injury, Love will lead the team.
