Scotland Under-17 were narrowly beaten 1-0 by a talented France side at Broadwood Stadium on Tuesday night.
The visitors dominated possession from the outset, and Scotland initially struggled to adapt to the high tempo.
France opened the scoring on 17 minutes, but couldn't build on their lead. Scotland began to settle, and defended well as they limited their opponents to one more clear cut chance in the first half.
Scotland were much improved in the second half as they upped the pace of their game and pushed further up the pitch. Substitute Indi Cowie created a chance within fifteen minutes of entering the field, and a few minutes later Lucy Clark found herself one-on-one with the keeper, only to shoot wide.
Scotland Coach Ann-Helen Grahm said: "France are a very good side and we were a bit off the pace in the first half, although we defended well as a team.
"We were much better in the second half. We upped the tempo of our play, we were more composed and our decision making was better. Although France had most of the possession, I was pleased that we prevented them from having more than a handful of clear cut chances."
