Scotland Under-17 scored an injury time winner to record a well deserved victory over Denmark at Broadwood.
Substitute Rebecca Zoltie scored with a close range header in the 81st minute from a Claire Thoms free kick, to send Scotland into October's European Championship qualifers on a high.
Scotland pressed high from the outset and only an outstanding performance from the Danish goalkeeper prevented them from finding the net. The front pair of Emily Thomson and Lucy Clark caused lots of problems for the Danish defence, on the back of some great interplay with the midfield.
Mairead Fulton showed some excellent touches in the middle of the park, but was taken off early in the second half after going over on her ankle.
Coach Ann-Helen Grahm told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "I thought it was a very well deserved win. We played some excellent attacking football and really should have scored more goals.
"I was very pleased with the combination between midfield and attack. We pressed high from the outset, which can be very tiring, but we coped well and showed great composure."
Scotland face Lithuania, Austria and the Czech Republic in the first round of the UEFA Women's Under-17 Championships, kicking off on 7 October.
