SHE'S waited an entire decade and tonight Borders footballer Joelle Murray will finally play in a major international championships - this evening against the auld enemy.

The 30-year-old from Chirnside, who is the captain of Hibernian first pulled on a senior Scotland jersey in 2007.

The talented defender has earned more than 40 caps in the proceeding ten years.

And she has also witnessed enough improvements under head coach Anna Signeul for the Scots to finally qualify for the Euro championships.

Although the team won't be announced to nearer kick off, Joelle is expected to play some part in the clash with England.

Joelle, who played the second half in the final warm up match against the Republic of Ireland, told us: “It's something we have worked so hard for, for many years, so to be a part of it is something I'm very proud of and looking forward to.

“To finally qualify after a few years of disappointment - and nearly getting there – is certainly something the players really deserve.

“I've got 43 caps and this will be massive. Playing England at a European Championships finals – I don't know if it can get any better than that."

England go into tonight's match as hot favourites, having finished third in the 2015 World Cup.

And the bookies have Scotland priced up at 9/1 for the match as well as 20/1 to win the group.

Following tonight's game in Utrecht Scotland will also play Spain and Portugal.

The Scotland v England game, which kicks off at 7.45pm, will be televised live on Channel 4.
