Video: Watch Highlights of Scotland U21s’ Defeat to England Last Night

Scotland’s Under 21 team lost 3-1 to their England rivals last night in a game which showed how much more quality the country south of the border has in their youth ranks.

That’s not to say the Scottish team doesn’t have talent – far from it.

But, when you look at the starting line-ups for both teams, it’s easy to see why England won:

From that Scotland team, only Greg Taylor, John Souttar and Chris Cadden play regular Scottish Premiership football, while Oliver Burke is a name known to most fans.

But the rest are a combination of players with little first team experience or players who operate at a lower level in Scotland and England.

Take a look at the England team – the majority play first team football regularly and at Premier League level:

Fair play to Scotland for competing well though, as they looked like they were right back in the game with Chris Cadden’s second-half goal to make the score 2-1.

Josh Onomah and Tammy Abraham had given the hosts the lead at the Riverside Stadium in Middlesbrough before Cadden pulled one back for the Scots.

But England made it 3-1 almost immediately when Dominic Solanke tapped into an empty net.
