Scotland Too Hot To Handle
Updated Wednesday, 12th October 2011
National coach Anna Siinguel was as pleased as punch after watching her side win in Israel
Speaking to me on the phone after the game, Singeul said: "I was very pleased with the whole squad and the officials who made all the arrangements for today. We made a great start thanks to Jane (Ross) and Jennifer (Beattie) but felt we went into a little dip after half an hour which is when they scored. We had a water break around the twenty minute mark due to the heat. There was no shade on the playing surface which made things difficult for the players. However, I was really proud of how they coped after the goal by Israel and made sure in the second half that we were never in any danger."
This result is on the back of a 7-2 home win ina friendly against Denmark in somewhat chillier conditions at Tynecastle. Scotland now wait to play Wales at Tynecastle on 27 October in their group which is led by France who have played two games already.
