Scotland could not find that vital touch to turn chances into goals. Now there's a familiar story.
Scotland Under 18s drew a blank in the opening game of the Three Nations Tournament last night. They struggled to find a way past a stout Belgium defence at PalmerstonPark, Dumfries, with the game ending in a disappointing 0-0 draw. The youngsters worked hard to create chances, but could not get the final touch to open the scoring. Brian Gilmour forced a good save, while a header from James Thomson went wide. In the second half, substitute Scott Agnew shot agonisingly wide, and that was the closest the game came to a goal.
Next up in the tournament, Belgium will be taking on Northern Ireland at Raydale Park, Gretna, on Wednesday night, kick-off 7.30 pm. After that Scotland will play Northern Ireland, back at PalmerstonPark, on Friday evening, also at Admission is £5 for adults and £2 for children and pensioners for both games.
