Scotland Under-17s lose in Sweden
 Women's Football News 21 Mar 2011
 
Scotland Under-17s lose in Sweden - 21 Mar 2011 - Women's Football NewsScotland Under-17 were beaten 1-0 and 3-1 in their friendly double header against Sweden.
 
Coach Pauline Hamill says that the weekend's matches were a worthwhile exercise as her squad prepare for the Elite qualifying round of the UEFA Women's Under-17 Championship next month.
 
The two sides were forced to play two games in two days after the first match, originally scheduled for Friday, was postponed due to heavy snow.
 
When the match eventually kicked-off on Saturday, an early goal from Mimmi Larsson was all that separated the two sides after a tight encounter.
 
Hamill made six changes to the starting line-up for the second match of the double header. Scotland started strongly, but fell behind to another early goal. Caroline Weir brought Scotland right back into it with a brilliant finish from the edge of the box, but Sweden wrapped up the win with goals in each half.
 
Hamill told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "Sweden gave us two tough games. It wasn't ideal playing two games in two days, but we were pleased to be able to give all of the players some game time. It was a very worthwhile trip - the players will take a lot from it and it's given me a few things to think about ahead of the qualifiers.
 
"We made a number of changes to the starting line up for the second game, which gave me a chance to see all of the players in action.
 
"Caroline Weir did very well to score our equaliser, and I was pleased for young Zoe Ness, getting her debut at this level at just 14 years old. It was a confident performance and she caused the Swedish defence a few problems.
 
"Despite the results the matches were quite tight and we competed well. Sweden are a good side and we showed that we are developing all the time. It was good for the players to test themselves, to experience this style of play against a side who move the ball quickly.
 
"There's no substitute for experience on the international stage. Sweden are also in the elite qualifying round for the Euros, so our players now have more experience of what to expect at this level. The players have enjoyed the time together and we can build on these performances."
