Scotland have been drawn against France, Hungary and Faroe Islands at the 2017 UEFA European Under-17 Championship finals in Croatia.
Scot Gemmill's side learned their opponents at the finals draw in Zagreb this evening.
This year’s tournament will be played between 3 to 19 May across seven venues – five in and around Zagreb, and two near Opatija.
The group winners and runners-up will advance to the quarter-final stage to be played 12/13 May.
The final will be played on 19 May at Stadium Varaždin.
Today’s draw was made by Lance Kelly, Head of UEFA National Team Competitions, and tournament ambassador and Rangers midfielder Niko Kranjcar.
Scotland were among the top seeds after a flawless qualification campaign in which they won all six matches, scoring 16 goals and conceding only once.
This year’s finals will be Scotland’s fifth appearance at the under-17 finals, having first qualified back in 2008.
It will be Scotland’s fourth in successive seasons, having reached the finals in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
Their best performance came in 2014 in Malta where they reached the semi-finals.
