Scotland's Women Score At Will
Updated Sunday, 8th June 2003
If only the Scotland A team could get into the scoring habit picked up by the women.
The firepower of Scotland's captain, Julie Fleeting, was too much for the Portuguese. Fleeting scored five goals in the win, and her strike partner Linda Brown was almost as prolific, with the other three. Portugal's sole reply came in the second half from Ines Silva. The win confirms that Scotland are now a force to be reckoned with in European football. Although pre-tournament expectations were geared towards consolidation, hopes will be rising that the team could even qualify for the finals in England in 2005.
