Just in case you thought Kim Little saved all scoring for the Seattle Reign, she showed she's more than happy to do the same to international opponents. Little helped get Scotland's run toward the 2017 Women's European Championship by scoring a hat trick in a 3-0 win over Slovenia on Tuesday. Here are all three goals.

In order to qualify for the European Championships, Scotland will need to finish no worse than second in a five-team group that also includes Iceland, Belarus and Macedonia. While that might not seem like a too tough a task, consider that Scotland has not qualified for the a major international competition since making the group stage of the quaintly named European Competition for Women's Football in 1989.
