Scotland were beaten 3-0 by Finland in Pietarsaari in the first of two international challenge matches against the hosts but Head Coach Anna Signeul is optimistic going into the second game of their double header.
Scotland created a number of chances in the first half, only for Finland to take the lead just before half time through Essi Sainio after a quickly taken free kick.
The teams were evenly matched throughout the second half, but Scotland paid the price for not converting their chances when Finland grabbed two late goals. A corner in the 84th minute led to a Michelle Kerr own goal, while Tuija Hyyrynen added a third in the final minute of regulation time.
Scotland Head Coach Anna Signeul told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "The result might not have gone in our favour, but there are a lot of positives that can be taken from the performance. We played some very good football, had lots of possession and created a lot of chances.
"I'll be looking for improvements in and around the boxes in the next game, but overall, I thought we showed a great attitude, and we go into the second game with a lot of optimism."
