On Wednesday night, Scotland were beaten 1-0 in Finland at Veritus Stadium, Turku in the first leg of a double header.
The match was played in front of a crowd of 4,477 - the highest ever for a women's international in Finland.
Scotland played well in the first half and had several chances, most notably by Shelley Kerr and Pauline Hamill. Finland were very strong up front, however despite numerous chances for Finland the goalkeeper Gemma Fay produced a string of saves.
Finland took the lead with a scrappy goal following a goalmouth scramble. Scotland Coach Anna Signeul was disappointed with the result for Scotland and told www.scottishfa.couk after the match: "We want to look forward after this match. We are disappointed to get beaten tonight, however we are determined to win against Finland on Saturday."
Scotland play their second match on Saturday 29 September at the Olympic Stadium, Helsinki, kick-off 5pm (3pm UK time).
