Young Chelsea FC Women striker Erin Cuthbert played the full 90 minutes as Scotland Women recorded a sensational 3-2 victory over Poland Women in Kielce.

Shelley Kerr’s side were 2-0 down with 24 minutes remaining but three late goals from Scotland saw the game turn on its head as they kept their 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup dreams alive.

Dzesika Jaszek fired Poland ahead after just six minutes. The player lobbed Scotland keeper Lee Alexander from what looked like an impossible angle to score.

The second goal of the game arrived just after the hour mark when Scotland defender Sophie Howard was in the wrong place, at the wrong time, as she deflected a cross into her own net.

Scotland’s hopes of boarding the plane to France next summer looked to be fading but Kim Little’s inch-perfect free-kick gave Kerr’s side a glimmer of hope 12 minutes from time.

Jane Ross brought the scores back to 2-2 three minutes later before Scotland completed an unthinkable comeback in injury time when Lisa Evans struck a sensational winner.

The result leaves Scotland occupying second place in qualification Group 2. They trail group leaders Switzerland by three points ahead of their home clash in August. Scotland end their qualifying campaign with a trip to Albania in September.
