Late Clelland goal not quite enough

Scotland's training camp in La Manga ended with a 2-1 defeat to Iceland in their second friendly match.
The first half was an even affair but the start of the second period brought two goals for Iceland who were in the ascendancy.
As the game fizzled out, Scotland ended the game with a bang through Lana Clellend who bagged a consolation with a stunning strike from the edge of the box.
Three Scotland players started for their country for the first time, in the shape of Jenna Fife, Lucy Graham and Zoe Ness, whilst Frankie Brown took the captain's armband, also for the first time.
The opening half an hour was even with Iceland trying their luck from outside the box on three occasions but failed to test Hibernian number one, Fife.
Scotland were comfortable in possession but were unable to really test Thrainsdottir in the Icelandic goal.
Erin Cuthbert was presented with a good chance in the box after 26 minutes but her shot was solidly blocked and the danger was averted.
At the break the scores were goalless but Elín Metta Jensen gave Iceland the lead after 49 minutes when she gathered the ball in the box and smashed it into the net.
Five minutes later Iceland were two goals to the good when a cross was controlled by Elín Metta Jensen again and she bagged her double, dispatching beyond the diving Jenna Fife.
Erin Cuthbert was always a threat going forward and after 65 minutes she unleashed a rasping shot but the goalkeeper was able to collect.
As the game wore on Shelley changed the team around and substitute Lana Clelland made an impact when she scored with the last kick of the ball before the final whistle sounded.
Scotland will next travel to Portugal at the end of February to compete in the Algarve Cup where they will face Iceland again and then Canada before playing a placing match.
Scotland: Jenna Fife, Chloe Arthur (sub Fiona Brown 80mins), Joelle Murray (sub Abbi Grant 67mins), Frankie Brown, Nicola Docherty, Joanne Love (sub Leanne Crichton 80mins), Caroline Weir, Jane Ross (sub Lizzie Arnot 80mins), Lucy Graham, Erin Cuthbert, Zoe Ness (sub Lana Clelland 60mins). Subs not used: Shannon Lynn, Kirsty Smith, Hayley Lauder, Christie Murray, Rachel Harrison.
