Scotland confirmed in elite round

Scotland have been confirmed as the third-placed side across the 13 qualifying round groups and will join 27 other sides in the elite round draw on 3 December.

Scotland will take their place in next month's UEFA European Under-19 Championship elite round draw after being confirmed as the best third-placed side in the qualifying round.

Ricky Sbragia's side finished behind Norway and Lithuania in Group 13, but their record against the top two was better than any of the other 12 third-placed sides and they will therefore join the 26 group winners and runners-up, plus six-time champions Spain, in the 3 December draw.

Next summer's final tournament will be played in Greece in July.
