Kyle Cameron

Scotland boosted their hopes of reaching the semi-finals of the UEFA European Under-17 Championships with a 1-0 win over Germany on Monday afternoon.

And Newcastle defender Kyle Cameron played a big role in a resolute display from the Tartan Army, who scored inside 15 seconds of the second half through Scott Wright.

Cameron started and came off for the final seven minutes - and could yet face club colleagues Adam Armstrong and Freddie Woodman in the last four.

England have won both of their group games so far, with Armstrong scoring twice and Woodman claiming a clean sheet in the opening game against Malta and saving a penalty in Monday's 4-1 win over Turkey.

Scotland had lost their opening game to Portugal on Friday but climbed to second  in Group B after beating the Germans.
