Scot Gemmill's side begin their qualification campaign against San Marino in Paisley on September 5, followed by a trip to play Croatia in Sibenik five days later.

The Lithuania and Greece games are likely to have a huge bearing on Scotland's chances of reaching the 2021 European Under-21 Championship finals, which will be co-hosted by Hungary and Slovenia.
