Scotland Under-17 squad named for 2017 Euros

Wednesday, 19 April 2017


Scot Gemmill has named his squad to take part in an unprecedented fourth successive UEFA European Under-17 Championship finals. 

 

The squad is relatively unchanged from the side which qualified from the elite round with six Performance School pupils included.

 

Ranked sixth in Europe they defeated Malta, Wales and Portugal in the qualifying round last year and recorded victories over Montenegro, Serbia and Switzerland at the Paisley 2021 Stadium in March.

 

This season’s finals in Croatia take on added significance as they act as a qualifying round for the 2017 FIFA Under-17 World Cup to be held in India in October.

 

Included in the squad is Norwich City’s Glenn Middleton who scored four goals in three games in the elite round. An 18th player will be named in due course.

 

Scotland’s highest placing at the Euros came in 2014 when they reached the semi-finals.
