England and Scotland both face an uphill task if they are to qualify to this summer's UEFA Under-19 Championship Finals in Wales after losing their opening group matches.
England took on Serbia in Jessheim, Norway, and were beaten 5-4 in an amazing see-saw match. Serbia took a fifth minute lead through Jelena Cubrilo but two goals in a minute from Melissa Lawley turned it around in England's favour. However Serbia were back in front by half time thanks to Jovana Damnjanovic and Aleksandra Savanovic. Ana Popov put Serbia further ahead and although Katie Zelem pulled one back, Damnjanovic restored the two-goal deficit. Zelem gave England late hope with her second goal but Serbia held on to give themselves a winning start.
Scotland meanwhile hosted Denmark in the opening match of their group and this turned out to be a much tighter affair. In the end it was Denmark who triumphed 1-0 at Livingston, Amalie Gronbaek Thestrup scoring the only goal of the game just before half time.
There was better news for Northern Ireland as they shared a 1-1 draw with Iceland, Everton's Simone Magill scoring a second half penalty to cancel out Telma Thrastardottir's strike just before the half hour.
