Scotland Under-19s Euro 2017 journey ended in the fifth placed play-off when they went toe-toe with England for a place at the Under-20 World Cup in France and lost out 2-0.

Scotland started the competition at Windsor Park where they were defeated against eventual semi-finalists, Germany 3-0 in their first group game.

The Germans were a strong, impressive outfit who put a resolute Scotland team to the test with Liverpool’s Rebecca Flaherty putting in an impressive showing for the Scots in between the sticks.

Next up were the hosts, Northern Ireland, in Lurgan with Scotland taking a lead through Kirsty Hanson who was their only scorer during the four games.

Gareth Evans’ side were close to holding on for the victory but they agonisingly conceded with just five minutes remaining, to end the match as a draw.

Their final group game at the start of this week was against Spain where Scotland were subject to a number of attacks but held strong and were frustrated to concede after 55 minutes despite holding out for long periods.

Despite not progressing from the group, Scotland still had a chance to reach the World Cup but England ended their hopes with a 2-0 win.

Scotland now turn their focus to two September friendlies away to Croatia before travelling to Hungary for the Euro Qualifying round where they will play three matches against the hosts, Armenia and Turkey in October.
