Scotland cruise to four-goal success
 Women's Football News 18 Sep 2008
 
A comfortable 4-0 for Scotland was the ideal preparation for the crucial Euro 2009 qualifier against Slovakia at the end of the month. 
 
Scotland dominated the game from the outset, pinning Switzerland back into their own half for much of the first 45 minutes. Julie Fleeting shook off her recent injury worries and proved a handful for the Swiss defence, forcing goalkeeper Marisa Brunner into action a number of times.
 
The breakthrough came in the 27th minute, when Scotland won a free kick on the edge of the box, and Fleeting stepped up to curl the ball into the top corner of the net. The lead was doubled just nine minutes later, when defender Jennifer Beattie went on a mazy run through the Swiss midfield, providing a low cross to Fleeting who slotted home from close range.
 
Scotland continued to press forward in the second half, with Leanne Ross sending a free kick just wide and Fleeting drawing another save from Brunner within fifteen minutes of the restart. Switzerland rarely troubled the Scottish defence, with goalie Gemma Fay making her first save at the feet of Martina Moser in the 81st minutes.
 
Michelle Kerr had a goal chopped off but the third came just two minutes later. Kim Little outpaced the Swiss defence to send in a low cross from the left, finding substitute Kirsty McBride, who lobbed the ball high into the net. Little got a goal of her own two minutes from time when she raced clear in the middle of the park, and rounded the goalkeeper to fire low into the bottom corner.
 
Scotland now face Slovakia at McDiarmid Park on 28th September, in a game which they must win to secure a place in the play-offs of the UEFA European Championship for the first time in their history.
