Narrow defeat for Scotland
 Women's Football News 18 Sep 2011
 
Finland 1 (Sallstrom 65) Scotland 0
A second half Linda Sällström goal saw Scotland slip to a narrow defeat against Finland in the first game of an international challenge match double header in Helsinki. 
 
With Glasgow City captain Rachel Corsie missing from the centre of defence, Rachael Small stepped in to partner Ifeoma Dieke, and Scotland initially coped well with Finland's long ball tactics.
 
But after an even first half, Sällström broke the deadlock on 65 minutes, getting on the end of a cross across the box to head into the top corner.
 
Scotland national coach Anna Signeul told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "We are disappointed to lose, especially after two good performances in our recent friendly wins over Switzerland and Belgium. But we have the chance to bounce back immediately when we host Finland in Edinburgh on Wednesday.
 
"We competed very well for most of the match, which is pleasing in an away game against a team who are above us in the rankings.
 
"They were looking to play the long ball all the time, which made it difficult for our midfield to get into the game.
 
"We showed some very good link up play in spells but we need to be more composed when we're in possession.
 
"What I would say is that we defended very well and were disappointed to concede, although to be fair it was a very good header.
 
"We will be looking to dictate the play more on Wednesday night and I'm sure it will be a very different game."
 
Scotland now play Finland at Tynecastle Stadium on Wednesday in their final warm-up game before the UEFA Women's Euro 2013 qualifiers kick-off with a visit to Israel on 12 October.
 
Scotland: Gemma Fay, Rhonda Jones (sub Frankie Brown 81mins), Jennifer Beattie, Ifeoma Dieke, Rachael Small, Leanne Ross (sub Suzanne Grant 58mins), Emma Fernon (sub Christie Murray 78mins), Kim Little, Megan Sneddon, Jane Ross (sub Alana Marshall 90mins), Hayley Lauder. Subs not used: Shannon Lynn, Julie Fleeting, Nicola Docherty.
