Scotland Under-21 coach Billy Stark has named Jamie Ness and Murray Wallace in his squad for the upcoming friendly against Belgium.

Huddersfield Town defender Wallace wins his first call-up to Stark's squad while Stoke City midfielder Ness returns after a two-year absence.

The match at East End Park takes place at 19:45 BST on Tuesday 14 August.

Scotland play their final two European Under-21 Championship qualifying matches in September.

Luxembourg visit St Mirren Park on 6 September and Scotland end their Group 10 campaign in Austria four days later.

The Scots are currently second in the section - six points behind the Netherlands, who have played one game more.

The 10 group winners and four best second place teams progress to the two-legged play-offs with the finals in Israel next summer
