A superb Julie Fleeting strike on the stroke of half time gave Scotland a 1-0 win in the second match of their friendly double header in Switzerland.
After Saturday's 3-3 draw, Scotland defended staunchly in the pouring rain in the first half and Arsenal striker Fleeting put the visitors into a deserved lead with a superb 30-yard strike in the 46th minute.
With two crucial World Cup Qualifiers taking place at the end of June, coach Anna Signeul made four changes in the second half.
Hibernian goalkeeper Shannon Lynn came on to win her first Scotland cap while Jane Ross, Joelle Murray and Kirsty McBride replaced Pauline Hamill, Fleeting and Leanne Ross.
Anna Signeul told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "It was a great team performance tonight. We were determined to tighten up at the back after losing three goals on Saturday, and I have to say we defended very well, especially in the first half.
"We were very pleased to keep a clean sheet, and we scored at the perfect time. It really was a great goal, Julie caught it perfectly and it dipped just below the bar.
"We've got two important games at the end of the month, so it's good to go into the qualifiers after two very competitive warm-up matches, and on the back of a win."
Scotland are currently unbeaten in FIFA Women's World Cup qualifying Group Three. They travel to Bulgaria for the first match of a double header on 19 June, before taking on Denmark at Rugby Park on 24 June. Tickets are available on the gate, priced £5/£2.
