Scotland v Wales U19 Euro third placed play-off 19-man squads announced.
In the European U19 Championship third place game, Wales face Scotland the Celtic cousins keen to put their semi final disappointments behind them.
Opposite number Ant Walker commented: “The performance against England wasn’t up to scratch and I think some of our boys got too wound up in the occasion. I’ve been doing some video on Scotland and it’s up to our boys to turn up the intensity.
“We tried hard but were outplayed in every aspect of the game. Full credit to England, they did a professional job but we want to finish on a high.”
For Scotland boss Danny Addy: “After the semi we were all gutted. The result was our own doing as everything France did we’d seen before. It’s been a great trip and we want to round it off properly.
“We’ll mix it up against Wales and bring out some things we haven’t tried yet,” claimed Scotland head coach Danny Addy. “We need to get the guys motivated again after such a low against France.”
