Wighton on target for Scotland

Craig Wighton helped Scotland to victory in their first game of the UEFA European Under-17 Championships Elite Qualifying Round. The Dundee striker converted a second half penalty in the young Scots 2-0 victory over Bosnia-Herzegovina at Rugby Park.

The win means that Scotland sit top of their group with the remaining two fixtures for each side played this week.

Wighton played the full match in which he struck the post early on before finding the net from 12 yards in the second period.

Scotland take on Belgium on Wednesday night at Cappielow Park with a 6pm kick off before concluding the group with a match against Romania back at Rugby Park on Saturday with a 3pm kick off.
