A Kim Little double helped secure a 3-3 result Scotland in the first of their two matches against Switzerland in four days.
Switzerland went 1-0 up, but Little brought her side back level for what would prove not to be for the last time in the match. The Arsenal midfielder won the ball back for Scotland and played a one two with club team mate Julie Fleeting before finishing into the bottom corner from eight yards out.
Switzerland then extended their lead and went 3-1 up before the half time break. In the second period, Pauline Hamill got the Scots back into the game with Little involved once more. Reacting to a ball from Little, Hamill rounded the Switzerland keeper and coolly slotted home to reduce the deficit.
Scotland pushed for the vital equaliser and were eventually rewarded when substitute Jane Ross linked up with Little and the talented midfielder hit a good strike from the edge of the box across the keeper and into the bottom corner to secure her second of the match.
Commenting on the game, Glasgow City and Scotland centre half Rachel Corsie said: "In the first half hour we struggled to keep a hold of the ball and that caused us major problems. Defensively we should have dealt a lot better with runners from the midfield but in the second half we were a lot better.
"I felt we dominated the second period and we got our just reward when Kim scored the equaliser in the last minute. There were lots of positives, but we do need to work on a few things for the coming games."
