Video: Fraser Hornby Scores Two in Scotland Under 21s’ 2-1 Win Over Holland

Fraser Hornby scored two goals as Scotland Under 21s beat Holland 2-1 tonight.

The Everton youngster was the hat-trick hero as Scot Gemmill’s side beat Andorra at Tynecastle last Thursday.

But today was going to be a much tougher test for him and Scotland as they went up against a nation notoriously strong at youth level.

Not that it showed, though, with Scotland getting a deserved 2-1 victory to breathe life into their Under 21 Euro 2019 Championship qualifying campaign.

Hornby’s first goal was a brilliant finish from around 40 yards into an empty net:

And his second was an emphatic finish from the penalty spot in the last minute:

What a performance from Hornby and the 21s – one that should excite the nation as well as national team manager Alex McLeish.

Scotland impressed against Albania in their Nations League opener last night and tonight’s result for the 21s shows there’s some serious talent emerging through the youth ranks too.
