Scotland made it two wins from two in their Euro 2021 qualifying group after they beat Albania 5-0 away from home.

The visitors thumped Cyprus 8-0 in their opening group game and continued to show that free-flowing, attacking style in Elbasan.

Claire Emslie and Jane Ross set the ball rolling for the Scots as they took a two goal lead into the break.

Hannah Godfrey then got in on the act as she made the perfect start to her international career by netting on her debut. 

And Erin Cuthbert and Christie Murray added their names to the score sheet to round off a comfortable evening for Michelle Kerr's side.

Kirsty Hanson received the player of the match award after a stellar performance that saw her orchestrate many of the team's chances.

The win has put Scotland in second position in Group E, three points ahead of Portugal but below Finland, who have played a game more.

Up next for Kerr and her team is a trip to Cyprus for their next qualifying match on April 9.
