Academy keeper Archie Mair represents Scotland in U19s Euro Qualifier

10 October 2019

Norwich City U23s goalkeeper Archie Mair made his sixth appearance for Scotland on Wednesday evening, playing the full 90 minutes against Belarus in the UEFA Euro U19s Championship Qualifiers.

The Scots got off to a good start against the Belarusian side, scoring in the 12th minute, with Nathan Patterson giving his side the early advantage. By the 20th minute, the game started to look even better for Scotland, who were awarded a penalty, with Adedapo Mebude doubling their lead.

However, this two-goal advantage was lost when goals from Dmitriy Prishchepa and Raman Davyskiba levelled up the game by the 54th minute.

Scotland were putting the pressure on late, but Belarus held on, ending in a 2-2 draw and giving Mair’s side an acceptable point to start their qualifying campaign. Scotland next play Andorra in their second game of the qualifiers on Saturday, October 12 (12pm KO).

Elsewhere, Isak Thorvaldsson was in the ranks of Iceland’s international call-ups, helping Iceland beat Finland 1-0 in a friendly on Wednesday evening.
