A last minute Heather Richards goal gave Scotland Under-17 their second victory over Denmark in three days.
Scotland kicked off the friendly double header with a comfortable 4-0 win over their hosts on Sunday, but were made to work hard for this victory.
Next up for Pauline Hamill's side is the UEFA Women's Under 17 Championship first round qualifiers in Austria next month.
Pauline Hamill told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "It has been a very worthwhile trip, and we can all be pleased with two victories and two very good performances.
"In the first game we had lots of attacking play and looked very strong going forward. The second game was a very different experience. The players had to work together as a team and defend well throughout the match. Denmark are a very good side, so these are two great results.
"We're very pleased with how well the players have gelled. Quite a few players have come up from Under-15s, and we're pleased to see them doing well. But we've essentially got an entirely new group of Under-17s, and it's a credit to the players that they've performed to such a high standard as a team after just two training camps together.
"We made six changes in the second game, which gave us the chance to see all of the players in action before we select the squad for the Euro qualifiers.
"We're all very excited about getting out to Austria. We've got three tough matches against Austria, Ukraine and Romania, but this is a chance for us to see how far we have come at this age group. A lot of hard work has gone into developing the women's game over the last few years, and this is a very exciting time."
