Scotland lost their opening match in the Cyprus Cup, going down 2-0 to a talented French side.
Both of the goals came in the last quarter, Delphine Blanc giving France the lead in the 69th minute and Eugenie Le Sommer wrapping up the win with seven minutes remaining.
Scotland Head Coach Anna Signeul told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "It was a good game and a good test for the players against a very skilful, passing team. We came into this game on the back of a big winter break and maybe you could see that we were lacking a little in terms of sharpness and intensity.
"The two goals that we conceded were on the counter attack and I think that we showed that we have the confidence to go forward and take our game to the opposition. Unfortunately a very good French side were able to exploit the spaces and the result reflects that.
"Of course, with a little bit of luck we could have had a draw. Kirsty McBride had a great chance to level the match and if she had then I really believe that we could have secured at least a draw.
"New players like Rachel Corsie have shown that they have the confidence to be a part of the international set up. It is good to be playing again and against such quality opposition.
"Of course we are disappointed, no-one wants to lose a game. We will learn from this and we will move on. This tournament is the start of our preparations for the World Cup qualifiers later this year. While there is room for improvement I believe we are on the right track."
