Scotland Under-19s came from 4-1 down to win 5-4 against Austria in Gareth Evans' first game as national coach.
Rachel Halliday scored her second with the last kick of the ball to complete a remarkable comeback following second half goals from Katey Turner and Carolina Richardson.
Zoe Ness scored the standout goal of the match with a fine strike on 26 minutes. Austria equalised on 37 minutes to send the sides in 1-1 at half-time.
Austria then forged a three-goal margin with goals in the 52nd, 61st and 71st minute, but Scotland fought back to make it a memorable night for Evans.
He told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "It's mixed emotions for me. I'm delighted we were able to fight back from 4-1 down. The second half goals all came from substitutes so it was a real team effort.
"The whole experience was new to me and was certainly a memorable one. To win with the last kick of the ball is pleasing. It showed that 'never say die' attitude required by every national team."
Scotland are preparing for the UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship first qualifying round in September. Evans' side will travel to FYR Macedonia to take on the hosts, plus Romania and Georgia.
Scotland: Megan Cunningham, Chloe Arthur, Fiona Brown (sub Corri Cairns 70mins), Lucy Graham, Rachel O'Neil, Elizabeth Arnot, Clare Williamson (sub Sarah Laverty 70mins), Caroline Weir, Hannah Stewart (sub Katey Turner 45mins), Zoe Ness, Abbi Grant (sub Carolina Richardson 60mins). Subs not used: Jenna Fife, Leigh Nicol.
