It is the second time in two months Meshino has been called up by his country following his international debut against Brazil's Olympic side four weeks ago.

The on-loan Manchester City player will leave Edinburgh this weekend to fly home and join his international team-mates.

They have six days of training planned before facing Colombia Under-22s in the 2019 Kirin Challenge Cup in Hiroshima.
