SCOTLAND coach Shelley Kerr insists the pressure is "100 per cent" on England ahead of their Women's World Cup clash in Nice on Sunday.

Kerr's side go into their first World Cup match as huge underdogs against one of the tournament favourites but she is adamant her players will rise to the occasion.

Kerr said: "It's our first World Cup and the journey so far has been fantastic and we're playing against a formidable England team.

"It's going to be a tough ask but it's one we're really looking forward to."

Kerr, who will be able to pick from a fully fit squad, is adamant she expects more from her Scotland squad despite their achievement in qualifying for the first time.

She added: "The whole country has been captivated by our achievements in reaching the World Cup but we don't want to stop there.

"I've been honest about our target which is to get out of the group stages. As much as it's going to be difficult, that's certainly our target.

"I think there's a real trust, belief and confidence in this group. We've had to face a lot of challenges and that will stand the group in good stead."

The game will kick off at 17:00 tonight UK time.
