Scotland beset by injury problems

Gemma Clark will miss Scotland's final match at the UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship due to a knee injury; skipper Rachael Small is doubtful with an ankle problem.

Scotland will conclude their UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship Group A campaign against Italy on Sunday without goalkeeper Gemma Clark, while doubts persist over captain Rachael Small.

Clark was replaced by Lee Alexander with 15 minutes left of the 5-1 defeat by Germany after damaging her knee as she slid out to gather the ball. Small, a centre-back, sat out the match at the Boris Trajkovski Stadium nursing an ankle injury sustained during Monday's 3-1 loss to England. Coach Shelley Kerr also had to substitute midfielder Lisa Evans against Germany because of a recurrence of an ankle problem, while Eilish McSorley was withdrawn due to illness but should be fit to face the Azzurrine.
