Jamaica 2 (Shaw 15,49)
att:18,555; at Hampden Park

Scotland had the perfect send off for the World Cup in front of a record crowd at Hampden Park of 18,555 as they beat Jamaica by the odd goal in five in an entertaining encounter.
Goals from Erin Cuthbert, Caroline Weir and Sophie Howard gave Scotland the win although Shelley Kerr will be hoping her team can cut out the mistakes that led to the two Jamaica goals.
With both teams headed to France for the FIFA Women's World Cup, this was the last opportunity for Shelley Kerr to get a look at her players.This was also the first time Scotland had played at Hampden in seven years and was the first ever match between the sides.
Scotland had plenty of the ball in the opening stages of the game but soon found themselves one behind to Jamaica after losing the ball just outside the box. Khadija Shaw fired the ball past Lee Alexander from 18 yards after Scotland looked to play the ball out from the back, but the Jamaican pressing was enough to rob the ball off Claire Emslie and result in the goal.
Caroline Weir twice went close for Scotland. Her low drive straight after the goal took a wicked deflection and nearly found its way into the bottom corner. Weir then tried her luck from distance, forcing the Jamaican goalkeeper Schneider into a low save. As the half hour arrived, Kim Little broke into the box and her low drive was well saved.
Moments later, Erin Cuthbert did what Erin Cuthbert does. She picked the ball up near the centre circle, drove forward and unleashed a fantastic strike into the top corner from over 20 yards to equalise for Scotland.
Scotland scored their second goal on just five minutes later. Cuthbert was brought down on the edge of the box and Weir smashed the resulting free kick, left footed, into the back of the net to give Scotland the lead, which they took into the interval.
For all Scotland's good work in getting into the lead it was another defensive error, that allowed Jamaica to get back on level terms just three minutes into the second half. Sophie Howard, on as a half time substitute, lost the ball to Shaw who raced through on goal to calmly score past Lee Alexander.
It didn't take too long for Sophie Howard to make amends though. After Scotland had shouts for a penalty turned down when a Jamaican defender appeared to block a Lisa Evans cross with her hand, the resulting corner kick picked out Howard, whose looping header found the opposite corner to restore Scotland's lead.
Both Scotland and Jamaica had chances to score more goals, Kayla McCoy having the best chance for Jamaica to equalise in the 82nd minute, but Shelley Kerr's side closed the game out to ensure they will go to the World Cup Finals in good spirits.
Scotland: Lee Alexander, Kirsty Smith, Nicola Docherty (sub Hayley Lauder 80mins), Rachel Corsie, Jennifer Beattie (sub Sophie Howard 45mins), Kim Little, Caroline Weir, Lisa Evans, Jane Ross (sub Christie Murray 45mins), Claire Emslie (sub Lizzie Arnot 45mins), Erin Cuthbert (sub Lana Clelland 80mins). Subs not used: Shannon Lynn, Jenna Fife, Joanne Love, Leanne Crichton, Chloe Arthur, Joelle Murray, Fiona Brown.
