World Cup: Anna Signeul hails Scots after thrashing Bosnia
Anna Signeul said Scotland's high tempo proved too much for Bosnia as they coasted to victory in their World Cup qualifier.
The Scots outclassed their Group 4 opponents with a 7-0 win at Fir Park to make it two wins from two.
"I couldn't ask for a better start," the Scotland coach told BBC Scotland's Sportsound.
"There was some great play; when we play one-two touches and play it wide, we were just destroying them."

“It was fantastic from the beginning to the end and I'm very proud that they could do exactly what they wanted”
Goals from Lisa Evans, Leanne Ross, Kim Little, Rachel Corsie, Jane Ross, Suzanne Lappin and an Alisa Spahic own goal capped a ruthless display by the rampant Scots.
The win follows the 7-2 success against the Faroe Islands in their opening qualifier and Signeul confessed that she "couldn't ask for a better start".
"It was fantastic from the beginning to the end and I'm very proud that they could do exactly what they wanted," she added.
"We tried to play as high a tempo as possible because this is a good team that we played: they're tactically good and technically good.
"But with our pace and our tempo, that's what was the difference between the two teams."
Regarding Evans's player of the match display at Fir Park, where she scored and had three efforts chalked off, Signeul said: "I was delighted to see that she was so successful and it wasn't an easy full-back she was playing against.
"Very clever runs and good passing into the box."
Evans said the Scots were delighted with their display, adding: "We came out of the blocks in the first 10 minutes and got a good early start.
"And it just carried on from there."
Goalkeeper Gemma Fay, who earned her 160th cap, said they talked about being more ruthless in their campaign.
"We conceded two goals against the Faroe Islands that we weren't happy about," she added.
"And I think what you saw out there was ruthlessness. I know my family are proud of me and I have to thank them for their support throughout the years.
"Why wouldn't you want to play for 15 years with these types of girls? They put everything out there on the pitch: their heart and their soul every time they go out there."
The Scots host Northern Ireland in their next qualifier at Fir Park on 26 October before travelling to Poland five days later.
