Three out of three for Scotland
 Women's Football News 27 Oct 2015
FYR Macedonia 1 (Rochi 44) Scotland 4 (Little 22, Corsie 27,28, Weir 31)
Scotland regained top spot in Group One of UEFA Women's EURO 2017 qualifying with a comprehensive 4-1 victory over FYR Macedonia in Skopje. 
Goals from Kim Little and Caroline Weir and a brace from Rachel Corsie, all inside a ten minute spell in the middle of the first half, continued Scotland's 100% record in qualifying so far.
Anna Signeul made one change from the team that defeated Belarus 7-0 at Fir Park with Leanne Ross coming in to replacing the injured Lisa Evans of Bayern Munich.
Scotland picked up in Skopje where they left off in Motherwell on Friday, pinning their opponents inside their own half. The home side opted to play with a back five meaning that, like against Belarus, Scotland had most of the possession in the opening stages.
Macedonia's resistance lasted 21 minutes before Scotland took the lead. A neat flick from Jane Ross was latched on to by Kim Little, who utilized the newly created space inside the penalty box to fire past Viktorija Doneva to open the scoring.
The goalkeeper had done well to prevent Scotland scoring in the opening 20 minutes, making fine saves deny Ross and Jo Love, but the midfielder's effort was too good.
The goal triggered a ten minute blitz for Anna Signeul's side, in which the team went on to score three more times before a third of the match had been played. A quickfire brace from Rachel Corsie, one with a header and another from 25 yards, was swiftly followed by a goal for Caroline Weir. The Bristol Academy striker's shot from outside the box snuck under Doneva to cap off a remarkable ten minute spell.
On the stroke of half time, Scotland conceded their first goal of the campaign. Macedonia's captain, Natasha Andonova, played a clever long ball behind Eilish McSorley to find Gentjiana Rochi, who showed composure to calmly place the ball into the bottom corner past Gemma Fay to score Macedonia's first goal in UEFA Women's EURO qualifying.
Scotland tried to press home their advantage in the second half, but could not extend their lead to more than three goals. Scotland now have a superior goal difference to Iceland, and top Group One with maximum points from their opening three games. 
FYR Macedonia: Viktorija Doneva, Natalia Naumoff, Katerina Mileska (sub Aleksandra Ristovska 90mins), Sijce Andonova, Gentjiana Rochi, Eli Jakovska (sub Aleksandra Markovska 85mins), Natasha Andonova, Dragana Kostova, Jana Chubrinovska (sub Afrodita Saliihi 59mins), Maja Angelovska, Shkjipe Bojku. Subs not used: Froska Kostova, Bojana Ivanova, Saska Kokalovska, Dushanka Pejkova.

Scotland: Gemma Fay, Frankie Brown, Jennifer Beattie, Rachel Corsie, Eilish McSorley, Joanne Love (sub Leanne Crichton 84mins), Hayley Lauder, Kim Little, Jane Ross, Caroline Weir (sub Kirsty Smith 80mins), Leanne Ross (sub Lizzie Arnot 65mins). Subs not used: Shannon Lynn, Christie Murray, Lana Clelland, Chloe Arthur.
