Scotland remain on maximum points in the FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifiers but the win over the Faroe Islands was marred by injury to Erin Cuthbert.

Having opened the scoring from 25 yards, Cuthbert was stretchered off at the end following a nasty collision.

Chloe Arthur got her first goal for Scotland from a Jane Ross cross, then getting her second with a header via a Rachel Corsie delivery.

It was 4-0 before the break, with Nicola Docherty supplying the cross and Christy Grimshaw the finish from a tight angle.

The visitors got a goal back early in the second half, but Arthur found Martha Thomas who turned and fired in Scotland’s fifth.

Jenna Clark came off the bench to score on her debut, bringing down Cuthbert’s cross and slipping the ball under the on-rushing keeper.

Claire Emslie completed the scoring by curling home a free kick into the far corner.

Next up for Scotland at Hampden Park is Hungary on 22 October, tickets are available here.
