Scotland Under-17s came from behind to beat Denmark 3-2 in an International Challenge Match in Kolding.
Two second half goals from Alyshia Walker sealed the win following a fifth minute strike by Carla Jackson.
Scotland started the game well but, against the run of play, Denmark scored in the third minute. Jackson responded two minutes later with a stunning 35 yard strike.
The Danes went in 2-1 up at half-time following a 27th minute looping cross which went high into Scotland's net.
In the second half, Scotland stepped up another level as Jackson, Walker, Carla Boyce and Courtney Whyte dominated proceedings. Seven minutes into the half, Walker equalised when she pressured the Danish goalkeeper, won the ball and tapped in from close range.
She scored her brace and Scotland's winning goal with 13 minutes remaining as she glided past two defenders and finished with only the goalkeeper to beat.
Scotland play Denmark again on Thursday in what will be the final match before their UEFA Women's Under-17 Championship elite round later this month where they will travel to Hungary to play the hosts, Norway and Finland.
Scotland Under-17 national coach Pauline Hamill told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "I thought in the second half we were outstanding. We've shown that we can compete against teams with the calibre of Denmark.
"We will have to be at our best in the elite round where we will come up against some top sides. Games like today have shown that we are more than capable of doing it."
Scotland: Rebecca Flaherty, Courtney Whyte, Georgie Rafferty, Abigail Harrison, Chelsea Cornet, Kirsty Howat (sub Dana Baird 69mins), Alyshia Walker, Carla Jackson, Erin Cuthbert, Charlotte Brown (sub Jackson 80mins), Carla Boyce (sub Sarah Robertson 40mins). Subs not used: Amy Anderson, Rachel McLaughlin, Brogan Anderson, Laura Hamilton, Louise Brown.
