Julie Fleeting scored a hat-trick as Scotland defeated Belgium 3-2 in the Tennent's International Challenge Match at McDiarmid Park.
Ahead of the kick off, there was a special presentation to mark Pauline Hamill winning her 100th cap for her country.
The first half saw Scotland with the majority of the pressure with several chances on goal but the excitement came in the second half with Belgium player Kristel Verelst opening the scoring at 55 minutes.
Belgium were not in the lead for long as Fleeting scored minutes later and went on to complete her hat-trick within six minutes of first finding the net.
The match is part of Scotland's preparations for their UEFA Championship qualifying group double header away to Slovakia on Saturday 27 October and then home to Denmark (ranked 6th in the world) four days later at McDiarmid Park.
Currently Scotland sit joint third in Group 5 with Portugal, behind leaders Ukraine and Slovakia. (www.scottishfa.co.uk)
