Scottish Football U21s stun hosts France to record Toulon win

Scotland’s Under-21s secured a special success over Toulon tournament hosts France.

Captain Oliver Burke’s strike was enough to separate the two sides but this really was a victory that owed everything to 14 players who left everything on the pitch.

While a talented French squad piled on the pressure late on, Scot Gemmill’s side stood tall and played patient, possession-based football to ensure keeper Robby McCrorie was only called into action on a handful of occasions.

On the back of a hard-fought opening draw with Togo, this was Scotland’s first win over France at any level, since James McFadden’s legendary strike in Paris 11 years ago.
