FULL-TIME Scotland 3-1 Slovenia
Scotland pick up a crucial win to keep their 100% record in the Group. Not at their best, but the result is what is recorded. Next up is their qualifier against Iceland in June at the Falkirk Stadium
Scotland have a free-kick on the left, by the byline. Little drills a ball in but it’s cleared
Zala Gomboc replaces Anisa Rola.
Leanne Ross plays Jane Ross down the right, she cuts the ball back to Little, but she can never get the ball to settle at her feet and the chance goes. FOUR MINUTES to be added on
Slovenia has a corner. Rogan’s ball is dangerous at Tibaut makes a great run, but luckily for Scotland her header goes wide of the near post.
86 mins – PLAYER OF THE MATCH
I’m going for Hayley Lauder. What do you think?
Kim Little sees a shot deflected behind for a corner. Weir takes it, but it is just about cleared.
84 mins – Slovenia Sub
Marusa Sevsek replaces Kaja Erzen
Scotland has a free-kick 25 yards from goal in the left-channel. Little takes it, and it looks like it’s going wide, but Vamberger makes sure. From the resulting corner, Jane Ross flicks a header just wide of the far post.
A sloppy pass back from the half-way line from Scotland concedes a corner, and Slovenia nearly score. Rogan’s delivery is good and a few players try their luck until on the dge of teh box Conc shoots over
Evans plays Weir into the box but she is denied by a super Erman tackle. The ball falls to Leanne Ross whose shot is blocked, and then Evans herself sees a shot deflected behind. Slovenia just about deal with the corner.
Great keeping here. Sloppy Slovenian play gives the ball to Lisa Evans who whips in a dangerous cross which takes a deflection off a defender, and Vamberger reacts to get a hand to the ball to tip it way from the waiting Leanne Ross
Chance for Slovenia as Erman threads through Erzen to the edge of the box, but she fires her shot over.
Caroline Weir plays a cross-field ball to Leanne Ross on the edge of the box who controls the ball, and then shots straight at Vamberger.
Scotland have a free-kick on the left, which Slovenia manages to clear.
Scotland has a corner which Little’s delivery comes to nothing
Slovenia win their first corner. Rogan’s ball to the near post finds Erzen but she misdirects her header away from goal. Soon after they have another chance when Erman has the ball on the edge of the box, but under strong pressure from Dieke she shoots wide, off balance as well.
63 mins – Scotland Sub
Leanne Ross replaces fellow Glasgow City player Hayley Lauder
Emma Mitchell puts in a dangerous cross, but its just too high for Little at the far post
61 mins – Scotland Sub
Caroline Weir replaces Leanne Crichton
Erzen slides through Corsie on the byline as the ball goes out. The ref talks to both players, but I’m not sure if a foul was given.
Emma Mitchell breaks down the left, but her cross is cleared.
Zganec is booked for a foul on Mitchell
Slovenia have a free-kick on the left win. Erman’s delivery is good but is just too powerful and runs into Fay’s arms.
52 mins – GOAL SCOTLAND 3-1 Slovenia (Kim Little)
Little places the penalty to the left. Vamberger goes the right way, but the penalty is too good.
51 mins – PENALTY FOR SCOTLAND
Scotland have a penalty for a clip on Little’s heels by Conc
Luckily Dieke is up and walking, and it doesn’t look like Joelle Murray will be coming on just yet. Still not sure how that wasn’t a foul
Worrying for Scotland. Ifeoma Dieke makes a run into the Slovenian half and is blocked by Tibaut, and she flips over the Slovenian player and lands on her back. The physio is on.
Slovenia get the second half underway
Manja Rogan replaces Lara Ivanusa
Half-Time – Scotland 2-1 Slovenia
45 mins – GOAL SCOTLAND 2-1 Slovenia (Jane Ross)
Jane Ross scores, but this is all about Lauder and Little. The two exchange quick passes outside the box, Little plays Lauder into the box and she cuts back to give Jane Ross a simple finish!
41 mins – GOAL Scotland 1-1 SLOVENIA (Kristina Erman)
Against the run of play, but the scores are level. Slovenia has a free-kick from 35 yards. Anisa Rola delivers a ball to the left of the box towards Kristina Erman whose looping header looks like its going over, but has Gemma Fay scampering and despite her getting a hand to it, the Scotland captain can’t keep the ball from creeping in.
Slovenia win a free-kick on the half-way line, and it picks out Tibaut on the left-wing. She cuts inside and then fires a shot wide of the near post. Too far out to threaten
A quick throw from Lauder sends Mitchell running towards the byline, and she wins a corner. Little’s corner is cleared to Lauder on the edge of the box, but she mishits her shot well over.
Slovenia has a free-kick in a dangerous position on the left-wing. But Kristina Erman wastes the opportunity by shooting and it goes wide of the left post.
Scotland has another corner. Little floats the ball into the near post where it is cleared. But Scotland recycle possession and Lisa Evans tries her luck from 30 yards, but Vamberger catches the ball, although the pace caused her difficulties.
Hayley Lauder is given space in the Slovenian box near the left, but her right-footed shot is straight at the keeper who makes a good save.
Scotland has another corner. Little’s delivery is palmed behind for another corner, this time on the right. This one is taken by Lauder, and the keeper just gets her finger to it. It goes out for a throw, but Scotland play it quickly and Little whips in a dangerous cross with the Slovenians just about clear.
Urska Zganec breaks down the Slovenian right-wing and whips in a dangerous ball but Ifeoma Dieke is there to deal with in.
Evans gets down the right and cuts the ball across the box to Lauder who backheels to Jane Ross whose shot is unfortunately blocked by Kim Little.
19 mins – GOAL SCOTLAND 1-0 Slovenia (Jane Ross)
She’s at it again! A good passing move sees Lauder pick out Jane Ross, who is allowed to turn her marker and then finds the bottom right corner. Great strike!
Scotland has another free-kick, but Little’s delivery is dealt with by the Slovenian defence.
Chance for Slovenia! Dominka Conc is given the space and sends in Tjasa Tibaut, but the Slovenian captain shoots wide of the left post from the edge of the box
Lisa Evans and Hayley Lauder have swapped wings, and Evans wins the ball on the right, passes to Kim Little who makes room in the Slovenia box, but her shot is saved by Vamberger, holding onto the ball at the second attempt. Possibly lacked the power.
Emma Mitchell is fouled on the left-wing after a mazy run. Kim Little whips in a dangerous ball, but Vamberger punches clear. Good keeping.
Lisa Evans gets down the right, but her cross goes out for a goal-kick. Slovenia packing the middle of the park. Scotland need to be patient, but use their pace and skill to break behind their defence.
This time Scotland goes down the left-wing, Hayley Lauder plays Emma Mitchell in, but her cross goes behind.
Lisa Evans uses her pace down the right to get in a cross, and it eventually falls to Leanne Crichton whose shot is saved by Slovenia keeper Eva Vamberger, tipping it wide. The corner from Kim Little is dangerous but comes to nothing.
Slovenia are happy for Scotland to have possession in their half, and are sitting deep.
The qualifier is underway
