CELTIC starlet Jack Aitchison struck a double as Scotland’s Under-19s shocked Holland 2-0 in Arnsberg yesterday.

Donald Park’s side will qualify for their first Euro finals in 12 years if they can defeat Norway in their final Euro Elite Round tie on Tuesday and hosts Germany fail to beat the Dutch.

The team boss was delighted with his side’s efforts.

He said: “If you looked in the dressing room after the game, you could see what it meant to the boys.

“It was a thoroughly deserved win for us and we’ve got a real chance of qualifying now.

“The first-half was even, but after the interval we definitely deserved it because we created chances and scored two cracking goals from Jack. So we are very pleased.

“Everyone in the team was superb. It’s just great to be in this position when we are in the last game knowing that if we win against Norway we are in with a chance of qualifying.”

After two games, Scotland, Germany, Holland and Norway are all on three points following the Norwegians’ 5-2 win over the hosts.

Aitchison got the opening goal in the 65th minute with a shot into the top corner and the Hoops youngster made certain of a famous victory with a second nine minutes from the end.
