Scotland edged out by England in FIFA Women’s World Cup opener
A valiant Scotland came up just short in their first-ever match at a FIFA Women’s World Cup, as Shelley Kerr’s team was edged out 2-1 by England at the Stade de Nice.
Claire Emslie’s goal with 11 minutes remaining had given Scotland supporters hope of at least a draw after the concession of two first-half goals, with Lee Alexander keeping Scotland in the match with a string of high-calibre saves.
