Comfortable victory for Scotland
 Women's Football News 21 Aug 2011
Scotland 5 (J.Ross 14,22, Fleeting 20, Little 30, Beattie 72)
Switzerland 0

Scotland notched up a comfortable win over Switzerland in their first home match of the season on Sunday afternoon. 
Anna Signeul's side were 4-0 up at half time at the Falkirk Stadium in a tie that they completely dominated.
Scotland signalled their intent in the opening minutes, with Julie Fleeing getting a head on Megan Sneddon's corner, but Swiss goalkeeper Gaelle Thalmann was there to collect. There was a scare a few minutes later when Rachel Corsie was dispossessed on the edge of the box by Isabelle Meyer, but Emma Fernon was on hand to clear the danger.
Jane Ross, one of four Glasgow City players in the starting line up, continued a good week for club and country when she headed Scotland into the lead with quarter of an hour gone, after scoring two goals in the past week as her club qualified for the last 32 of the UEFA Women's Champions League.
It was two just over five minutes later when Julie Fleeting took her impressive tally to 115 goals in 119 games for the national team. The Arsenal striker was brought down as she battled for the ball on the halfway line. Her club team mate Kim Little stepped up to take the free kick and delivered an inch-perfect delivery into the box, where Fleeting was waiting to head into the net.
Jane Ross grabbed her second and Scotland's third two minutes later, firing into the bottom corner from an impossibly tight angle.
It was four on the half hour. Jane Ross was upended in the box and Little stepped up to slot coolly into the net.
Scotland kept up the pressure and Fleeting almost grabbed another in the last few seconds of the half when she turned on the edge of the box and unleashed a low shot that went just wide.
The tempo slowed in the second half, but Switzerland failed to threaten. Scorers Jane Ross and Fleeting made way for Jennifer Beattie and Christie Murray just after the hour mark.
Arsenal defender Beattie replaced Fleeting up front, a role which has become familiar to the versatile player in recent Scotland appearances. Beattie made her presence felt as she slotted a low shot into the net for Scotland's fifth on 72 minutes.
Scotland now take on Belgium on Tuesday in the second match of the home double header.
Scotland: Gemma Fay, Emma Fernon, Rachael Small, Rachel Corsie (sub Rhonda Jones 78mins), Ifeoma Dieke, Leanne Ross, Jane Ross (sub Christie Murray 67mins), Kim Little (sub Emma Mitchell 78mins), Megan Sneddon, Julie Fleeting (sub Jennifer Beattie 67mins), Hayley Lauder. Subs not used: Shannon Lynn, Joanne Love, Frankie Brown.
