against Belgium on Friday, while England were held to a draw by Argentina.
"It was a far more positive performance today," said England head coach Bobby Crutchley.
"We dominated possession for long periods but couldn't break down a resilient Scottish defence until the last quarter of the game.
"There are still areas we need to improve. We look forward to the challenge that Belgium will present on Monday."
Scotland head coach Derek Forsyth said: "Defensively at times we were excellent, but when we're playing teams at this level we need to keep the ball longer so we can control the game a bit more.
"Every time we defended well, we made life hard for ourselves by turning the ball over too quickly.
"That said, England are a good team about to head to the World Cup. [It was] another great experience for the players and we move onto Monday against Argentina."
