QuoteFinn Ecrepont had been included in Scotland's Under 17 squad for friendly matches against France and Hungary in Spain, in February.The 20-man squad will meet up on Saturday 2nd February before travelling to Spain to prepare to play on France on Tuesday 5th February and then Hungary a few days later on Friday 8th February. Both games will be played at 3pm at the Pinatar Arena, just south of Alicante.
QuoteOn a sunny day in Spain, Scotland U17s were up against the highly fancied France U17s in preparation for the next round of the Euros.With players from Real Madrid and PSG, this was going to be a real test for Scotland, including our own Academy player Finn Ecrepont, who was starting at left back.The game finished 0-0, but what a great performance from the Scottish boys who again showed they can compete with the best of them. Scotland defended bravely as the French were throwing everything at them, including Theo Zidane, who plays for Real Madrid, just like his very famous dad did!!!Scotland still played with great composure from the back with all of them understanding their roles and were unlucky going forward at times not to get a goal that would have got them a victory.So well done Finn and his Scotland team-mates.
