It was a frustrating time for both Kevin McDonald and Brian Easton last night after playing for the Scotland Under 21 side.
Billy Stark had named both players in the starting eleven and both played the full 90 minutes of Scotland's European Championship Under 21 qualifying game against Azerbaijan at the Falkirk Stadium last night.
The result though was a disappointing 2-2 draw.
The Scotland Under 21 side before this match were second in the Group 10 table just one point behind Austria with a game in hand. They would have wanted a convincing victory against the bottom side last night.
Azerbaijan Under 21 had lost all of their previous five matches and had a terrible goal difference of minus 11 goals.
Scotland Under 21 had to come from behind twice last night and the result now leaves the Scots with more to do in their final two games against Belarus and Austria if they are to qualify for the finals in Denmark in 2011. They are currently top of the group table now but both Austria and Belarus could still pip them to the post.
Both players though at least seem to have come through the match unscathed and McDonald will now be available for our next match against Arsenal at the Emirates this Saturday.
Brian Easton is currently out on loan to his former club Hamilton Academicals and will now return to New Douglas Park.
