Finland secured their first victory in UEFA Women's Championship qualifying Group 1 with a 1-0 win in Serbia and Montenegro.
In a tight game, Heidi Kackur scored in the 40th minute to deny the home team their first point from their three matches since promotion - they are yet to score - while Finland moved up to third as Italy also won in Switzerland.
Serbia and Montenegro welcome leaders and 2001 runners-up Sweden to Belgrade on 15 November for the final Group 1 match of 2003. Finland, now within four points of Sweden having played a game more, now face a crucial trip to Italy on 24 April 2004.
