Scotland Under-21 squad announced for UEFA U-21 qualifier against Luxembourg


scotlandlogoBilly Stark has named his squad for Scotland’s 2015 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying match against Luxembourg.

Scotland begin their qualification campaign for the 2015 finals in Czech Republic with a home match against Luxembourg on Monday, 25th March, kick-off 7.30pm at St.Mirren Park.

Former Dons youngster Ryan Fraser has been called up for the first time, while former team mate Ryan Jack returns to the fold following a foot injury. Chelsea striker Islam Feruz also receives a call-up.

Commenting on his squad, Stark said: “Ryan [Fraser] started the season very well with Aberdeen and has been involved in the last half-dozen games at his new club Bournemouth. He is in the penetrating winger mould and his club manager has been really happy with him. He gives us that dynamic, positive play that we want to see and, although he might be slightly younger than the majority of the squad, he has shown that he is mature enough physically to handle first-team football.

“Feruz is an explosive player and really comes alive in the final third. He performed well for us against Portugal at the end of last year and I feel he has something to offer the squad.”
