Scotland 3 - 2 Jamaica

The Scotland Women's National Team had the perfect send-off in front of a record crowd at Hampden of 18,555.

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 the first time SWNT had played at Hampden in seven years and was the first ever match between the sides.

First Half

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.

1-0 to Jamaica

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.

30 minutes on the clock and it was Kim Little that broke into the box and her low drive was well saved.


Erin Cuthbert did what Erin Cuthbert does. She picks the ball up near the centre circle, drives forward and unleashes a fantastic strike into the top corner from over 20 yards to equalise for Scotland.

2-1 to Scotland

Scotland scored their second goal on just five minutes later. Erin Cuthbert was brought down on the edge of the box. Caroline Weir smashed the free-kick left-footed into the back of the net to give Scotland the lead.

Half Time

After losing an early goal Scotland dominated the half. Erin Cuthbert and Caroline Weir's excellent strikes putting the home-side into the break ahead.


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 lost the ball to Khadija Shaw who raced through on goal to score past Lee Alexander.

3-2 to Scotland

It didn't take too long for Sophie Howard to make amends. Her 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.
