  1. That's all from me

    FT: Finland 1-0 Scotland

    So tonight ends in disappointment for Scotland.

    Their performance deserved more, but ultimately Finland took their chance, while Scotland were profligate with theirs.

    But all is not lost. We have two massive games in a month's time to look forward to. Win those, and Shelley Kerr's side are back in the driving seat.

    Thanks for joining me. Enjoy the remainder of your evening.

  2. Kerr remains upbeat despite loss

    FT: Finland 1-0 Scotland

    Speaking on BBC Sportsound, Scotland manager Shelley Kerr says her side are still capable of winning Group E as they seek to qualify for a third consecutive major tournament.

    "We're obviously disappointed, we came here for three points," she said.

    "We knew it was always going to be tough out here. We're all capable of taking points off each other. It just means the November window is going to be tough for us.

    "I've said to the players that we were in the same position in the World Cup campaign and we managed to win the group.

    "We know it's a tough task, we're disappointed, I thought we controlled the game but at the end of the day they got that elusive goal and it gave them the three points."

  3. What's next?

    FT: Finland 1-0 Scotland

    Scotland's hopes of qualifying for Euro 2021 now rest on two massive games in a month's time.

    First up are Portugal away from home, who could be ahead of Scotland by the time they play that game.

    A few days later, Finland travel to Scotland for the return fixture.

  4. Scotland lose ground in Group E

    FT: Finland 1-0 Scotland

    Finland move four points clear at the top of Group E and while Scotland have a game in hand, Portugal, who are currently playing Cyprus, are just two points behind in third and can move into second with a win.

    It's currently 0-0 in that game.

  5. 'A missed opportunity'

    FT: Finland 1-0 Scotland

    Steven Thompson

    Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Finland were there for the taking. If we want to qualify as top of the group, that's a missed opportunity. We're going to have to beat Finland at home, but on tonight's showing I'm confident we're more than capable of doing that.
  6. Qualification 'not lost'

    FT: Finland 1-0 Scotland

    Julie Fleeting

    Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Lots that we can work, it's just a reminder that it's not easy to qualify in the group. It's not lost tonight and I'm sure the players will be able to reflect and improve.
  7. FULL-TIME Finland 1-0 Scotland

    How have Scotland lost that?

    Shelley Kerr and her side will be absolutely gutted with that. Scotland dominated for about 90% of the game. They hit the post, they hit the bar, they had a strong penalty appeal turned down and they missed a one-on-one.

    But Finland caught Scotland off-guard at the start of the second half, and Eveliina Summanen's goal after 51 minutes is the difference between the two sides.


    Finland 1-0 Scotland

    So close to an equaliser!

    Jane Ross glances a header onto the bar. It would have been a brilliant goal, not an easy chance by any means.

  9. CLOSE!

    Finland 1-0 Scotland

    Is that Scotland's last chance?

    An inviting corner by Caroline Weir is whipped in, and Rachel Corsie is just inches away from making contact, but it evades everyone and Finland breathe a sigh of relief.

  10. Scotland struggle for chances

    Finland 1-0 Scotland

    Julie Fleeting

    Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: We just aren't quite getting the break of the ball, but it just takes one moment.
  11. Exciting last ten minutes to come...

    Finland 1-0 Scotland

    It's all getting a bit frantic, with Scotland really pushing for an equaliser. Kirsty Hanson has just put an effort wide.

  12. Can Ross find a goal?

    Finland 1-0 Scotland

    Jane Ross is on for Scotland, replacing Christie Murray as Scotland search for an equaliser.

  13. CLOSE!

    Finland 1-0 Scotland

    What an effort by Leanne Crichton!

    The ball sits up nicely for the substitute, who unleashes a ferocious striker from 25 yards out. It's once again brilliantly saved by Korpela.

    Time starting to run out, but Scotland have found their feet again.


    Finland 1-0 Scotland

    Much better from Scotland.

    Kirsty Hanson does really well on the edge of the box to make space and picks out Emma Mitchell, whose shot on the turn forces Korpela into a good save.

  15. Scotland ring the changes

    Finland 1-0 Scotland

    Kirsty Hanson and Leanne Crichton are on for Scotland, with Martha Thomas and Lizzie Arnot departing the pitch

  16. CLOSE!

    Finland 1-0 Scotland

    Another chance for Finland as Oling arrives at the back post, but Lee Alexander does enough to put her off and she heads the ball over the bar.

  17. GOAL! Finland 1-0 Scotland

    Eveliina Summanen


    Finland have come out for the second half full of energy, to be fair.

    Franssi forces a brilliant save from Lee Alexander. From the resulting corner Lizzie Arnot clears the ball off the line, but only as far as Summanen, who hammers it home.
