Last updated : 18 February 2007 By Ed_ScottishFitba
Scotland Women's 'A' squad lost 1-0 to Sweden in their second International Challenge game in Cyprus yesterday afternoon. The score was 0-0 a half time - which against a Swedish team who are preparing for the FIFA Women's World Cup in China in September this year is not bad going. Scotland lost their captain, Julie Fleeting, at half time after she had to give into a head injury suffered in the15th minute. This gave 16 year old Kim Little a chance to pick up her second senior cap as she put in an impressive performance.

Scotland absorbed much of the Swedish pressure until the 80th minute when, despite several attempts to clear the ball to safety, Fischer scored the only goal of the game. This was a very credible performance by Scotland and National Coach Anna Signeul, herself a Swede, was pleased with her teams performance and commented: "
I think we played very well, we had a good attacking game. I really feel the team are getting stronger with each game we play." Scotland now look forward to their next International Challenge match against England, this will be the first match to be played at New Wembley on 11 March 2007.

Scotland: Johnstone, Dieke, Kerr, Ferguson, Ross, Brolly (McBride 63min), Burns (McDonald 86min), Love, Sneddon, Fleeting (Little 45min), Hamill (Grant 76min)
