Scotland have triumphed over Albania in their bid to reach the European Championships.

Shelley Kerr’s team won 3-0 at Tynecastle Park in Edinburgh on Friday night.

Captain Rachel Corsie headed home the first goal at 37mins.

Caroline Weir netted the final two, the first at 75mins and the second from the penalty spot in stoppage time.

It was the team’s first international game since a 2-1 win over Northern Ireland in the Pinatar Cup tournament in March.

They will now continue their UEFA Women’s Championship campaign by travelling to Helsinki to take on group leaders Finland on Tuesday.

Scotland currently sit second in Group E, with three wins from three.
