Scotland thrash Cyprus 10-0 in Women's Euro 2022 Qualifier
Scotland Women hit double figures with an incredible 10-0 rout of Cyprus in their Euro 2022 qualifier.
Erin Cuthbert, Martha Thomas and Jane Ross grabbed doubles, with Caroline Weir, Kirsty Hanson, Lizzie Arnot and Claire Emslie also on target in Larnaca.
Stuart McLaren took charge as interim head coach for the first time following Shelley Kerr’s December departure after defeats to Portugal and Finland had ended Scotland’s qualifying hopes.

There was no let-up in the second half as Arnot made it six and substitute Emslie got in on the scoring act.
Substitute Ross then converted from the penalty spot and wrapped up the rout after Thomas had claimed her second.
The Scots finish their qualifying campaign against Portugal in Larnaca on Tuesday.
