England and Scotland under-19s were involved in some close battles as they participated in the Ten Nations Tournament in La Manga last week.
England began their tournament with a 1-0 victory over Holland, Leeds Carnegie midfielder Jade Moore grabbing the winner with ten minutes remaining. Next up was a daunting match against Germany and the Three Lions went down to a narrow 3-2 defeat. Stefanie Mirlach gave the Germans a third minute lead which was cancelled out by Isobel Christiansen, but Germany went back in front on the stroke of half time through Mirlach. Toni Duggan levelled the scores once again after the break before Hasret Kayiciki netted a decisive goal on the hour.
The final game saw England finish up by beating Denmark 2-0. Rebecca Spencer saved a penalty early on and England went on to seal the victory with second half goals from Abbie Prosser and Jordan Nobbs.
In their opening match, Scotland held Denmark to a 1-1 draw with both goals coming in the first quarter of the game. Elizabet Madjarac put the Danes ahead in the tenth minute with Tammy Harkin earning the Scots a point by netting the equaliser. However in the second game, Shelley Kerr's side were beaten 4-0 by a strong Norway side, Cecilie Pedersen scoring either side of a Caroline Bakke goal in the first half and Hege Hansen adding the fourth.
Scotland's final opponents were Sweden and this time they went down to a narrow 2-1 defeat. After taking a first half lead, Sweden hit back to claim victory with strikes from Emilia Appelquist and Catrine Johansson.
