Scotland Under-19 rounded off a successful Ten Nations Tournament in La Manga with a crushing 4-0 win over France.
Lana Clelland netted twice, with Emily Thomson and Claire Emslie also getting on the scoresheet to cap an impressive performance from Shelley Kerr's side.
Scotland had opened up their group with a 1-0 victory over Iceland but the match was marred by a couple of injuries. Claire Emslie's second half strike was the difference between the two sides but there was disappointment for Shelley Kerr's side as Mairead Fulton suffered a knee injury that ended her involvement in the tournament. Iceland were also affected with a player taken to hospital with a suspected broken wrist following an innocuous challenge with Scotland goalkeeper Megan Cunningham.
Next up for the Scots were Sweden and the two sides battled out a goalless draw. In a new addition to this year's tournament, drawn matches automatically went to a penalty shootout and it was Sweden who eventually triumphed 6-5.
Meanwhile England's tournament turned out to be a disappointing one, results wise, as they ended up with a 3-2 defeat to Iceland despite taking a two-goal lead. Beth England and Elizabeth Ince had put them 2-0 up but a Telma Hjaltalin Thrasardottir brace either side of Sigridur Lara Gardarsdottir's strike earned Iceland a late victory.
England had been narrowly beaten 2-1 in their opening match by Denmark. Things started well for Mo Marley's side with Nikita Parris giving them a first half lead but Camilla Andersen levelled matters ahead of the break. With eight minutes left, Andersen netted her second goal to tip the balance Denmark's way.
In their second game, England earned themselves a valuable 1-1 draw against a strong USA side. Again they took a first half lead, Beth England opening the scoring, before Morgan Andrews earned the USA a draw by equalising two minutes before half time.
Both Scotland and England were using the tournament as preparation for their forthcoming UEFA Under-19 Championship qualifying groups, which take place later this month.
