Scotland grabbed a late winner through Rachel Corsie against Hungary at Hampden Park, for a third straight Women’s World Cup qualifying group victory.

A new attendance record of 6,445 for a competitive women’s match in Scotland saw Jennifer Beattie’s 20-yard volley forced a fine save from Réka Szocs, before the breakthrough came close to half-time.

Nicola Docherty delivered a cross to the far post, which landed at the feet of Christy Grimshaw, who had enough space and time to fire home.

Grimshaw was denied a second by Szocs, before the visitors netted a 56th-minute equaliser as Fanny Vágó rifled a shot into the top corner.

A Caroline Weir corner flicked on by Beattie was somehow kept out by the defence and Erin Cuthbert nearly netted with time running out, but the keeper clawed her effort away.

But via the resulting corner, Corsie was on hand to bury a header for an injury-time winner.

Scotland next host Sweden in a friendly at the SMISA Stadium in Paisley on Tuesday night, with tickets available here. The match is also live on BBC Alba, BBC iPlayer and the BBC Sport Website.
