Scotland Women beat Venezuela 2-1 in an international friendly on Monday 14 November, played at Estadio Antonio Bardillo in Spain.

Frankie Brown had the ball in the net from a Claire Emslie cross, but it was disallowed for a foul on the keeper.

Scotland did take the lead on 36 minutes, when Caroline Weir’s corner was headed home at the near post by Kelly Clark.

The advantage was doubled before the break, as Brown’s ball into the box saw an Emslie header find the back of the net.

Venezuela’s Mariana Speckmaier had an effort ruled out for offside but the lead was halved before the hour mark, when Manchester City’s Deyna Castellanos beat Jenna Fife from long range.

Emslie was denied a second goal by a save from Nayluisa Caceres, while Brogan Hay hit the woodwork on her senior debut.
