Scotland U-17s Roll Over Russia

Scotland continued their preparations for the UEFA U-17 Championship qualifiers later this year with a comfortable win over Russia in Nyon.

UEFA technical director, and former Scotland national coach, Andy Roxburgh, watched from the stand as Pauline Hamill's side continued their recent winning run, following two victories over Sweden in March.

Carolina Richardson put Scotland in front in the 33rd minute. A through ball caused confusion in the Russian defence, and the Hamilton Academical forward nipped in to knock the ball into the net.

Zoe Ness - who scored a double in last month's 4-2 win over Sweden in Livingston - extended the lead after the break when she collected the ball on the edge of the box and beat the goalkeeper with a low shot.

Ness turned provider for the third. Her free-kick rattled off the underside of the bar, and Elizabeth Arnot was there to follow up.

Saturday's other match between Wales and Bosnia & Herzegovina ended in a 1-1 draw after extra time, with Wales winning 7-6 on penalties.

Scotland and Wales now face each other on Tuesday, with Russia taking on Bosnia.

Neither are workable or likely at present but hypothetically, would you prefer a more strict salary cap in the FA WSL OR should centrally contracted England players (that receive salaries from The FA) be allocated more evenly around WSL1 clubs?
