Scotland hit three goals to earn a third-place finish at this year’s Toulon Tournament as they defeated Czech Republic 3-0 at Stade de Lattre-de-Tassigny in Aubagne.

Ryan Hardie opened the scoring shortly after the break with a stunning curling strike after an evenly-fought first half, his third of the tournament.

Craig Wighton added a second midway through the second half and a late own by Denis Granecny goal made it three, sealing an impressive win for Scot Gemmill's side.

The result matches Scotland’s best-ever finish at the competition.

Kilmarnock’s Greg Taylor, who netted the winning goal against Brazil in the group stage, was awarded the fourth-best player of the tournament.

Scot Gemmill said: “I was delighted with how the players responded after a disappointing defeat to England in the semi-finals.

“They have finished third from 12 teams so it’s a great achievement and we are really pleased to finish the tournament on a high.

“We’ve been away for more than two weeks now and played five matches in 10 days.

“They players deserve credit for how they have applied themselves in France and how they have responded to the demands we have placed on them.

“I’m sure they will take a lot from this experience and hope they go back to their clubs in a positive frame of mind and ready for the new season.”
