GOUROCK’S Greg Taylor helped Scotland Under-21s secure a semi-final place at the Toulon Tournament in France on Saturday.

Scotland will now face England in the semis tomorrow, after beating South Korea in their final group game at the weekend, following victory over hosts France and a draw against Togo.

The Kilmarnock defender has played every minute for the young Scots side during the group stages, as they progressed through as group winners, knocking out the hosts in the process.

And Taylor was also given the captain’s armband after Oliver Burke was substituted during their 1-0 victory over France.

It was the first time any Scotland team had beaten the French in 11 years, since James McFadden’s famous strike in 2007 to beat France 1-0 in Paris during the Euro 2008 qualifying campaign.

Their semi-final against England will be shown live on FreeSports.

The winners of the tie will play in the final on Saturday, where they will face either Mexico or Turkey, with the loser going through to a third-placed play-off.
