England hope but Scotland out
 Women's Football News 11 Jul 2008
England hope but Scotland out - 11 Jul 2008 - Women's Football NewsEngland kept their semi final hopes alive but ended the challenge of Scotland with a 3-1 victory in their UEFA Under-19 Championships group match in Avoine.
With Germany and Sweden drawing 1-1 in the other game, Mo Marley's side will have to beat the Swedes to ensure a place in the last four but Scotland are eliminated as a consequence of this defeat.
The hot weather did not slow the early pace and it was England who took the lead in the fourth minute, 15-year-old Sunderland striker Jordan Nobbs marking her debut by heading in a Jessica Clarke cross following good work on the left by Brooke Chaplen.
However England's joy lasted barely a minute as Scotland responded swiftly. A lob from Christie Murray came back off the bar and Ruesha Littlejohn was on hand to slot home the rebound for the equaliser.
Scotland enjoyed their best spell of the game as the game moved towards half time with Littlejohn shooting wide and Kim Little's shot being blocked by Sophie Bradley, however it was England who were to strike in the fourth minute of injury time. Jennifer Beattie misjudged a long ball forward and Toni Duggan capitalised with a shot which crept under the grasp of Rachel Harrison to send her side back in front.
Scotland were dealt a further blow early after the restart as Natalie Ross limped off to be replaced by Hayley Lauder and Duggan came close to increasing England's lead but was denied by a good save from Harrison, who also pulled off a save from the lively Nobbs.
Duggan was not to be denied though and she struck a killer blow as Chaplen's shot was deflected into her path, leaving the Everton striker with the simple task of sliding the ball into the empty net.
England: Rebecca Spencer, Chelsea Weston, Claire Rafferty, Remi Allen, Sophie Bradley, Gilly Flaherty, Jade Moore (sub Isobel Christiansen 58mins), Jordan Nobbs, Toni Duggan, Brooke Chaplen, Jessica Clarke.
