Delie hat-trick sinks Scotland
 Women's Football News 10 Mar 2011
France 3 Scotland 0
Scotland took fourth place in the Cyprus Women's Cup after losing 3-0 to France in the 3rd/4th place play-off match.
Marie-Laure Delie bagged a hat trick in a game which saw Scotland rocked by first half injuries to defender Ifeoma Dieke and forward Jennifer Beattie, and two penalty appeals for Anna Signeul's side waved away.
France pinned Scotland back into their own half during the opening exchanges, with Camille Abily bombing down the right wing and Delie looking dangerous up front.
Frankie Brown cleared the danger in the 6th minute when a cross into the box was met by Delie, and the French forward was flagged offside a few minutes later. Emma Fernon then made a crucial goal-line clearance from a corner.
Scotland were forced into a substitution on 13 minutes when defender Ifeoma Dieke suffered a hamstring injury and was replaced in central defence by Rhonda Jones.
France had another chance when Gaetane Thiney raced clear, but Fay did enough to force the shot wide. Scotland started to push forward and were aggrieved when French defenders appeared to handle inside the box in two separate incidents just a few minutes apart.
Rachel Corsie had a long range effort after some good link up play between Kim Little and Megan Sneddon on the right wing, but she could't get enough power behind the shot. Hayley Lauder got on the end of a long Corsie free kick from inside the Scotland half, but her effort sailed just over.
France broke the deadlock on the half hour when the menacing Delie struck from a corner.
At the other end a long Sneddon throw was missed by the French defence but Lauder couldn't get her head on the ball. Beattie struggled in the final few minutes of the half after landing awkwardly on her ankle, and was replaced by Suzanne Grant at the break.
French goalkeeper Berangere Sapowicz saved at the feet of Lauder in the opening minutes of the second half, before a great last ditch tackle from Brown thwarted a run by Sonia Bompastor.
Fay made a couple of saves from Diele, and the French forward was penalised for handling just outside the box. Leanne Ross whipped a free kick into the box which was cleared, only as far as Sneddon. Her ball into the box was chested down by substitute Christie Murray to the feet of Grant, but she couldn't get a shot away.
It was end-to-end stuff, and Grant carved out a cheeky opportunity, robbing Sapowicz at the corner flag and crossing into the box, but no-one was there to put the ball into the empty net.
France broke up the park and Diele doubled the lead, slamming the ball into the net after getting on the end of a cross from the left wing.
Deile hit a shot off the bar, before making it three with four minutes to go. Another counter-attack saw the French forward racing through the Scotland defence to fire past Fay.
Scotland: Gemma Fay, Emma Fernon, Frankie Brown, Ifeoma Dieke (sub Rhonda Jones 13mins), Rachel Corsie, Jo Love, Leanne Ross, Kim Little, Megan Sneddon, Jennifer Beattie (sub Suzanne Grant 45mins), Hayley Lauder (sub Christie Murray 60mins). Subs not used: Shannon Lynn, Joelle Murray, Rachael Small, Rebecca Dempster.
