The Scottish FA may bring in an interim successor to Shelley Kerr as Scotland head coach.
Kerr stepped down on Christmas Eve following a failed Women's European Championship qualification campaign.
While no plans have been finalised, the SFA are favouring a temporary coach to see out their final two group games before World Cup 2023 qualifiers commence next year.
A candidate shortlist has been drawn up but no interviews have taken place.
Andy Thomson, Kerr's assistant, had to step up after Covid-19 protocols prevented the manager being involved in Scotland's last two games.
Kerr, appointed in 2017, guided the women's national side to their first World Cup appearance last year - their second major finals in a row.
Speaking in December, she said: "I have lived and breathed the sport for as long as I can remember, so I know in my heart that the time is right for a new head coach to take the team forward to the next campaign."
