Scotland have extended their 100% record in their wualifying campaign for the Women’s World Cup, beating Hungary 2-1 at Hampden thanks to a last-gasp goal from Kansas City’s Rachel Corsie.
With 6545 fans inside the national stadium for a record competitive crowd for the women’s side, Scotland took the lead through Christy Grimshaw just before the break.
The visitors drew level eleven minutes after the restart after Fanny Vago netted and the two sides looked set to share the spoils before Corsie’s last-minute header sealed a third win from three games for Scotland.
Manager Pedro Losa Martinez was delighted with the result and believes his team can be the “best in the world” for their attitude and drive after the late win.
“These are the types of games that help us grow more as a team,” he said.
“Tactics and formations are important but the most important factor is the heart of the team and this is where we can be the best in the world, the best in the world at connecting with the fans.
“The girls showed character, we tried to contribute with our decisions and that communion can multiply the performance and make a normal team an excellent team.”
Scotland take on Sweden on Tuesday in a friendly before picking up their qualification campaign next month against Spain and Ukraine as they look to secure back-to-back World Cup qualification.
The Spaniards also have a 100% record so far but have played one game fewer than Scotland in the qualifiers.
