Fraser FyvieABERDEEN youngster Fraser Fyvie captained the Scotland Under-17s to a fine 4-0 win over Finland this week - scoring his second goal in the last two games for his country.

Scotland's youth squad is currently taking part in the annual Nordic Cup in Norway, and is top of their group with two wins in two games.

And Dons midfield starlet Fyvie has been integral to this success, scoring vital goals in both victories.

Scots captain Fyvie set up the equalising goal for Celtic's Callum McGregor, then scored a 25-yard screamer to give the Scots a 2-1 win over Iceland on Tuesday.

Against Finland, Scotland started at a high tempo but it took 28 minutes before a goal came that rewarded their good outfield play.

The move was started by goalkeeper Marc McCallum and five passes later Jamie Walker’s cross from the right was spectacularly volleyed in at the back post by McGregor.

After the break Scotland dominated the game and from McGregor's wide free kick, captain Fyvie headed into the Finish goal to make it 2-0 after 58 minutes.

McGregor's deliveries from set plays caused the Finish defence many problems and it was no surprise when Fraser Kerr blasted home from a corner to put Scotland 3-0 ahead in 70 minutes.

The final goal for the dark blues came on the 80th minute when Graeme Hutchinson headed home from another well delivered McGregor corner capping a fantastic team performance.

Scotland Youth Coach Ross Mathie said: “We are all delighted with the result that puts us top of the group with six points.”

Fyvie and the rest of the young Scots take on Sweden today before being involved in the final play-off system over the weekend.
