Late winner foils Scotland
 Women's Football News 23 Dec 2013
 
Scotland finished fourth in their first Brazil Women's International Tournament, after a narrow defeat to world number seven side, Canada, on the final day of action. 
 
Anna Signeul's side were looking to avenge a 2-0 defeat on match day one, but a late Sophie Schmidt header sealed victory for Canada in the third/fourth place play-off.
 
Hosts Brazil lifted the trophy after defeating Chile 5-0 in the final.
 
Neither Scotland or Canada had any clear-cut chances in an evenly matched first half. Marie-Eve Nault raced towards the Scotland goal after seven minutes, but fired well over the bar.
 
Canada captain Christine Sinclair, who picked up her 200th cap in the previous match between the two sides, then sent Jessie Fleming running with a great ball from midfield, but Gemma Fay easily held her shot.
 
Kim Little, who was back in the centre of midfield after partnering Jane Ross up front in the previous tournament matches, picked out Jennifer Beattie with a free kick from the right wing, but Canada goalkeeper Erin McLeod got a hand to the ball before the defender could connect.
 
In the final minute of the half, a mix-up between McLeod and Kadeisha Buchanan led to a Scotland corner, but Little's inswinging effort was knocked over the bar.
 
Both sides looked more dangerous in front of goal in the second half. Jane Ross had an opportunity to grab a spectacular opener, but her powerful curling effort from distance rattled the bar with McLeod beaten.
 
Fay then pulled off a great save to deny Adriana Leon. The striker got on the end of a Schmidt flick on to unleash a powerful shot, but the Scotland captain dived to her right to get a hand to the ball.
 
Little sent a low shot just wide before Canada took the lead. Sinclair flicked the ball in to Schmidt but Fay and Rachel Corsie combined to force the ball out for corner. Diana Matheson whipped the ball in, and Schmidt was there to head in at the near post.
