The veteran put in a calm and collected performance to complement her well known work rate for both club and country.

She explained: “It’s a performance we have got to build on, but I wouldn’t say I am really disappointed.

"I think at international level, you aren’t always going to get that perfect performance.”

A winning start for the Lionesses but Scott reiterated: “We passed the ball really well in the first half and probably let them in a little bit too much in the second half, but it would have been difficult to get the perfect performance in the first game and as I say the points are the most important thing.”
