Murray Wallace and Kieran Duffie are on Scotland duty this weekend.

Both have been called up for the national under-20 squad for games in Holland.

It is recognition at last for the pair who surprised many by missing out on Billy Stark’s squad for under-21 games in March after outstanding seasons for the Bairns.

Steven Pressley criticised the selection policy after both missed games against Holland.

But now Bairns defender Duffie and Huddersfield-bound Wallace have made the cut for the Den Haag tournament.

His call-up means Wallace will miss the game which decides his footballing destiny as new club Huddersfield play Sheffield United on Saturday - the same day Scotland face ADO Den Haag and Cruizeiro.

The team also face Manchester City tomorrow (Friday).
