Onwards to Metz

Can Gordon Strachan's men's team lift the sudden gloom that has returned to envelope Scottish football?

It is a tall order as they face Euro 2016 hosts and favourites France in tomorrow night's friendly in Metz. 

Join us for more live coverage as we look for a repeat of that famous James McFadden winner in 2007. We can but dream.

FT: Scotland 0-4 Iceland

Scotland's players are still expressing confidence that they can beat Iceland to that to spot.

However, on tonight's evidence, they are more realistically looking at finishing among the best-placed runners-up - and remember that six of those qualify automatically.

Scotland midfielder Joanne Love

On BBC Alba

"We are still hoping to take three points in Iceland and take maximum points from our last two games.

"Iceland did very well and deserved their win while we could not execute our game plan.

"We still think we can get a bit of revenge our there."

FT: Scotland 0-4 Iceland

Scotland must now beat Belarus away from home on Tuesday and then hope they can reverse the fortunes when they visit Iceland in their final group game.

FT: Scotland 0-4 Iceland

Iceland maintain their 100% record in Euro 2017 qualifying Group 1 and end Scotland's.

They are now level at the top of the table, but the visitors have a game in hand and are now strong favourites to top the group and ensure qualification.

FT: Scotland 0-4 Iceland

Iceland's coaching staff spill on to the Falkirk pitch to celebrate with their players as they realise the significance of their victory.

MISSED PENALTY

Scotland 0-4 Iceland

Nothing is going right for Scotland and they can't even grab a consolation goal as Kim Little sends the goalkeeper the wrong way but fires against the face of the post.

PENALTY

Scotland 0-4 Iceland

Scotland have a late chance with a penalty awarded for a hand ball.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Scotland 0-4 Iceland

Fanndis Frioriksdottir goes close to adding another goal for Iceland as her first shot is blocked by goalkeeper Gemma Fay's legs and the winger then curls a drive off the far post.

Iceland have done well to target Scotland's best players and have kept Kim Little and Jane Ross quiet

Scotland 0-4 Iceland

Scotland's thoughts must now turn to that game in Belarus on Tuesday, a match that is fast becoming a must-win for Anna Signeul's side if they want to qualify for next year's finals in Netherlands.

Scotland 0-4 Iceland

Jenny Beattie heads wide as the Scots force a corner, but it is all too late for the home side.

Just as Scotland were enjoying their best spell of the game, Iceland have hit them with three sucker punches. They are destroying Scotland down the right-hand side, while all three goalscorers were picked out far too easily in the box in what has been a poor defensive performance from Anna Signeul's side

Scotland 0-4 Iceland

Lisa Evans' cross is deflected just over the Iceland crossbar as Scotland look for what would surely only be a consolation goal. That is the last action for the Bayern Munich midfielder, who is replaced with Leanne Ross.

GOAL

Scotland 0-4 Iceland (Vidarsdottir)

Scotland are all at sea as Margret Lara Vidarsdottir rises to meet a cross ball and heads down and wide of an isolated Gemma Fay.

GOAL

Scotland 0-3 Scotland (Jonsdottir)

Scotland concede a corner with a poor passback to Gemma Fay and Katrin Jonsdottir rises to loop a header over the stranded goalkeeper. 

GOAL

Scotland 0-2 Iceland (Thorsteinsdottir)

Harpa Thorsteinsdottir rises above a static Ifeoma Dieke to head past Gemma Fay from 10 yards, with the veteran Scotland goalkeeper looking suspect as well.

Scotland 0-1 Iceland

Hayley Lauder's low ball across the face of goal just misses the outstretched to of Jane Ross.

Scotland 0-1 Iceland

Scotland are coming into the game and Iceland goalkeeper Gudborg Gunnarsdottir has a nervous moment as a mis-placed cross from Kirsty Smith loops on to the roof of the net. The Scots could do with a freak goal of their own to match Iceland's opener.

Scotland 0-1 Iceland

Scotland make another change, with Liverpool's Caroline Weir coming on for Notts County's Leanne Crichton in midfield.

Scotland 0-1 Iceland

Scotland have their first shot on goal and it has only taken 53 minutes to come. However, Jane Ross' weak drive comes off a defender and bounces to safety.

CLOSE!

Scotland 0-1 Iceland

Holmfridur Magnusdottir latches on to a clever flick over the Scotland defence and, when the striker chips over goalkeeper Gemma Fay, the Scots have Rachel Corsie to thank for a goalline clearance.

GREAT SAVE!

Scotland 0-1 Iceland

Scotland are trying to pass their way out of defence, but they are struggling to get out of their own half and, after Jenny Beattie gives the ball way, Holmfridur Magnusdottir fires a low drive from 22 yards that goalkeeper Gemma Fay does well to turn round the post.

CLOSE!

Scotland 0-1 Iceland

Hayley Lauder is straight into the action with a back post clearance as Fanndis Fridriksdottir flashed a shot come cross across the face of goal. From the corner, Anna Bjork Kristjansdottir heads wide from only five yards out. So close to a second goal.

KICK-OFF

Scotland 0-1 Iceland

Scotland have made a change at the start of the second half, with Hayley Lauder replacing Emma Mitchell, who had been struggling with injury.

Andrew Southwick

BBC Scotland at Falkirk Stadium

Scotland have scored 27 goals in just five games in Group 1, but Iceland goalkeeper Guodjorg has barely touched the ball tonight. Scotland have pace to burn down the wing in Lisa Evans and, if anything is going to happen, it is likely to be through her, with Kim Little sitting very deep and looking too be well marshalled

Iceland look really comfortable on the ball and defensively look strong. All the good players are in blue tonight but not the blue of Scotland

Craig PatersonBBC Radio Scotland pundit

It was a nervy start by Scotland and you can see that when the first cross came in and it resulted in the goal

Julie FleetingFormer Scotland striker on BBC Radio Scotland

Scotland 0-1 Iceland

Scotland have a lot of thinking to do at half-time. Iceland have been well in control and the nervous home side have rarely threatened.

HALF-TIME

Scotland 0-1 Iceland

Scotland 0-1 Iceland

Scotland win their first corner, but Iceland manage to clear as it bobbles around just outside the six-yard box with the home side crowded out.

Scotland 0-1 Iceland

We are still waiting for Kim Little to live up to her billing as world footballer of the year and impose herself on the game.

It is Iceland who are looking the more comfortable and accomplished despite suggestions by Scotland coach Anna Signeul that they were a physical outfit.
