Scotland Under-17s secured their second win in a week against Denmark in an International Challenge Match in Kolding.
Kirsty Howat's 25th minute finish was enough to seal a successful week for Pauline Hamill's squad who also beat Denmark 3-2 on Tuesday.
It was a close fought match between the two sides as the physical demands of playing two games in four days took effect. Inverness City Ladies player Rachel McLaughlin won her first cap for the Under-17s with Hamill making four changes to the starting line up that won earlier in the week.
There were few chances in the match and it took a piece of inventive play between Erin Cuthbert and Howat to break the deadlock. A clever one-two between the pair released the Dumfries-born Rangers striker who finished from close range.
This was Scotland's 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.
Pauline Hamill told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "The target for this game was not to concede a goal which always gives you a chance to win the game.
"When we had the ball we tried to be creative. We knew this would be a tough game. It was physically demanding for both teams.
"I was pleased to be able to give the whole squad an opportunity to play this week.
"We've came here and achieved everything we wanted to achieve. It's been good preparation for the qualifiers later this month.
"We don't want to get carried away. International Challenge matches are different to competitive matches but we can take a lot of positives from this week going into the qualifiers."
Scotland: Laura Hamilton, Courtney Whyte, Georgie Rafferty, Abigail Harrison, Sarah Robertson (sub Charlotte Brown 17mins), Chelsea Cornet, Kirsty Howat (sub Rachel McLaughlin 88mins), Carla Jackson (sub Carla Boyce 61mins), Louise Brown (sub Dana Baird 40mins), Erin Cuthbert, Brogan Anderson. Subs not used: Rebecca Flaherty, Alyshia Walker.
