Matthew Kennedy came off the bench to help Scotland Under-19s progress to the Elite Round of European Championship qualifying with a game still to play.

The teenage winger was a second-half substitute as the young Scots held on to a 1-0 win over Romania in Falkirk on Thursday.

And following Tuesday's 4-0 win over Armenia, a game in which Kennedy scored, Sunday's clash with Switzerland will determine which nation tops Group Nine.

Meanwhile, Gethin Jones and Johan Hammar will be trying to follow their fellow Blue into the Under-19 Elite Round in their own second set of qualifiers.

The youngsters met on Wednesday afternoon, with centre-half Hammar netting for Sweden in a 3-1 win over Jones' Wales.

The Swedes now face Russia on Friday afternoon, while the Welsh take on Slovenia.

Also set for action is striker Apostolos Vellios, with Greece Under-21s going head-to-head with Belgium on Friday.
