Scotland under-17s basked in their achievement of reaching the Final of the Nationwide tournament and are relishing the chance to take on England on Friday.
Goalscorer Danica Dalziel praised her team mates after the game, telling Women's Soccer Scene: "It was a brilliant result. We showed good teamwork, organisation and team spirit and that's what got us through.
"It was fantastic to score the goal. I have been told to get power in my shots and it worked - if you don't shoot, you don't score."
Molly McKean gave another good performance on the right of midfield and she revealed the team's delight at progression. "Two years ago we finished fifth and last time we were third, so we have done really well," said Molly. "Our aim was to do better than last year.
"It was tough playing against the wind in the second half as the ball was swirling all over the place but we kept going and got our reward. It will be great to play England in the Final and we can't wait," she added.
Jennifer Beattie is the youngest member of the squad but gave an outstanding display in the centre of midfield. "We were told that the USA would be a physical side, so we knew we had to get stuck in and win our tackles and headers," she said. "Tiredness was creeping in near the end, especially with playing against the wind, but we dug in."
Jennifer, who is the daughter of BBC Radio Five Live rugby commentator John Beattie, paid tribute to her midfield partner and captain Kim Little, saying: "She is a nippy player who covers so much ground during the match and gives a lot of inspiration to the other players. Kim is a great captain and it is really good playing alongside her."
