Scotland edged out by Danes
 Women's Football News 27 Jun 2010
Scotland suffered their first defeat in their FIFA Women's World Cup qualifying campaign tonight as a Line Roddik Hansen free kick gave Denmark a 1-0 win at Rugby Park.
Scotland now trail Denmark by four points with a game in hand. Qualification is still in sight for Anna Signeul's side, who must now win their remaining two games, including a potential winner-takes-all contest in Denmark.
Scotland had the best of the opening exchanges in an evenly matched contest where clear cut chances were few and far between. Kim Little had the first chance of the match inside five minutes when she got on the end of a Suzanne Grant cross but shot just wide.
Jennifer Beattie, who opened the scoring in Saturday's 5-0 win over Bulgaria, also tried her luck, before Gemma Fay pulled off a fine save to deny Johanna Rasmussen on 13 minutes.
Pauline Hamill cleared a Denmark corner off the line and was in action at the other end a few minutes later, when her cross-cum-shot was deflected out for a corner.
Scotland continued to press forward with Little drawing keeper Tine Cederkvist Viskaer into action on 21 minutes but Denmark were ahead just a minute later.
Joanne Love fouled Cathrine Paaske-Sørensen just outside the box, and Roddik Hansen stepped up to curl in a perfectly weighted free kick.
Scotland had the chance to draw level before half time, but Rachel Corsie's header from a Hamill free kick was just wide.
Little put in a player-of-the-match performance in midfield as she continued to drive Scotland forward, against a Danish side that has yet to concede a goal in the qualifying campaign.
Signeul was forced into a change when Grant pulled up on 54 minutes with a torn hamstring, to be replaced by Leanne Ross.
Jane Ross' pace made an impact following her introduction as a substitute and after a searing run down the left, her cross into the box was just out of reach of the advancing Hamill.
Scotland had a final chance in injury time when Emma Fernon connected with a Megan Sneddon corner, but Denmark held on to take the three points.
Scotland now face Greece in Dumbarton on 21 August. A win in that match would set up a decider in Denmark four days later.
Scotland: Gemma Fay, Emma Fernon, Jennifer Beattie, Rachel Corsie, Ifeoma Dieke, Joanne Love, Kim Little, Megan Sneddon, Suzanne Grant (sub Leanne Ross 54mins), Julie Fleeting (sub Jane Ross 65mins), P Hamill. Subs not used: Shannon Lynn, Rhonda Jones, Kirsty McBride, Frankie Brown, Joelle Murray.
