Tynecastle Park will host the two remaining home games for Scotland’s Under-21s in the UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualification campaign.

Scot Gemmill will take his side to the home of Heart of Midlothian as they locks horns with Andorra on Thursday, 6 September and England on Tuesday, 16 October.

Gemmill – who recently led the young Scots to a second successive last-four finish in the prestigious Toulon tournament – is looking forward to returning to a famously atmospheric arena that he knows well.

“It will be great to take the players back to Tynecastle Park for our last two home games of the qualification campaign,” he said.

“We benefited from a really rewarding trip to France, with a host of new players making their breakthrough at that age level.

“We also look forward to potentially welcoming back a few players who would normally be part of our Under-21 squad, but were too old for the specific criteria set out by the Toulon tournament organisers.

“Andorra will represent challenging opponents. We know that from our last encounter but it goes without saying that we will be looking to win the game.

“England, of course, are blessed with some talented players but we like to think we have enough within our own ranks to give them something to think about.

“I hope Scotland supporters in Edinburgh and further afield can make it along. We’ll look to give them plenty to shout about and it’s a stadium that generates the kind of atmosphere that can make them special occasions.”
