Pars representing Scotland

Scotland 0 Ukraine 2
European U21 Championship


For the European Qualifier played at McDiarmid Park, Perth on Tuesday night, Scotland made two changes from the side that drew with Latvia the previous Friday night. Scott Wright and John Souttar dropped out and Dom Thomas and Ross McCrorie came into the side.

The Scots lost a cheap goal in the first minute of added time at the end of the first half. Ryan Williamson was introduced as the first Scotland of the game after just ten minutes of the second half.

Wearing number 13, the Pars right back was deployed on the right side of midfield. Fifteen minutes later Rangers` Ryan Hardie replaced right back Liam Smith and Williamson moved to the right side of the back four.

Ryan got forward on 80 minutes and centred a great ball from the byeline. He got into several of his typical attacking moves but a lack of understanding with the players he was trying to connect with failed to create the much sought after equaliser.

Indeed Viktor KOVALENKO rubbed salt into the wound with a second Ukraine goal in the fourth minute of added time.
