UEFA Under-21 European Championships Qualifier
Scotland v Belgium
Tuesday 16th November 2021, kick-off 7.05pm
Tannadice Park, Dundee
Live on BBC Scotland

Following Scotland’s professional display against Kazakhstan which resulted in a 2-1 victory, they will be keen to continue this momentum and put in a similar performance in their next game against Belgium, who have had a flawless start within Group I, winning 5 games out of a possible 5.

The last time these nations faced each other at this level, was in 2012 in a game which resulted in a 1-0 defeat for the Scots. This was a Belgium side that included familiar faces within the Scottish game, with ex Livingston striker, Dolly Menga on the bench and three times Scottish Cup winner, Dedryck Boyata starting in the heart of defence.

Team News

Lewis Fiorini will be one to watch in this game, due to his impressive outing against Kazakhstan, grabbing himself a goal and assist to add to his outstanding overall play in the midfield at Tannadice Park.

The Lincoln city loanee, Archie Mair, featured for the first time at this level in Scotland’s first win of the campaign so far.

Pre-Match Thoughts 

Josh Doig said: “Kazakhstan was a positive experience, getting our first three points of the campaign. It was a nice feeling but we've moved on quickly as we need to now focus on Belgium which will be a different challenge.

“I think we need to go into this game looking at ourselves and what we can do to cause them problems, give it 100% and give us every chance to get a positive result.

“We've got a very tight-knit group, everyone knows each other, either playing against each other or with each other at some point. There’s no strangers. We’re all similar ages and all played against each other and the new boys coming in are welcomed so they have no problem settling in. I think that has helped the squad bond and that team spirit will undoubtedly help against Belgium.
