Scotland Under-21s head coach Scot Gemmill has selected his squad for the upcoming European Qualifiers against Lithuania and Czech Republic.
The youngsters, who head in to the matches on the back of two victories in the opening two group games, remain largely unchanged from last month’s squad announcement, with Tom McIntyre the only new addition to the group.
A clash against Lithuania at Tynecastle is the first task for the 21s, taking place on October 10 in the capital. Tickets are available now via Heart of Midlothian.
The Scots then face a trip to take on Czech Republic four days later, in what will be a difficult double header for Gemmill’s group.
The head coach, who steered his side to victories over San Marino and top-seeded Croatia earlier this month, believes it is another valuable opportunity for his players.
He said: “After two strong performances in our last two matches, we go in to games against Lithuania and Czech Republic, two very different teams who will be difficult to play against.
“We have a competitive group and this is another opportunity for them in a Scotland shirt to show what they can do. As always we hope to give the players valuable international experience against different types of opponents.”
He added: “It’s great to have Tom McIntyre back available for us. He’s a player we know well having seen him progress through the age groups and it’s another opportunity for him.”
