Last gasp agony for Scotland
 Women's Football News 7 Jul 2008
Scotland's opening UEFA Under-19 Championships match ended in a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Sweden, who scored a goal deep into injury time in Amboise.
After the early exchanges were even, it was Sweden who went close to opening the scoring through an audacious 40-yard effort by Louise Fors which struck the post. Scotland hit back with Jane Ross glancing a header from a Natalie Ross cross and Ruesha Littlejohn fired a shot just over the bar.
The first half had been played in heavy rain but this cleared after the break and it was the Swedes who opened the scoring midway through the second half. Emmelie Konradsson won the ball from Danica Dalziel and drilled home a low shot past the dive of Rachel Harrison to put her side in front.
However Scotland reacted well to the setback and were unlucky not to be back on level terms as Kim Little's drive was touched on to the bar by Nina Fellbrant. They continued to press with Hayley Lauder firing a free kick wide but their reward came eight minutes from time as Christie Murray turned the area and her deflected shot found the top corner of the net.
It looked as though Scotland had earned themselves a valuable point and Littlejohn went close to adding a second but the game was to have a nasty sting in the tail. Scotland had looked the likelier side to score but a Swedish break ended with Kim Ekeborn's shot being parried by Harrison and Sara Sjostedt was on hand to slide home the rebound and give Sweden the victory.
