Chelsea teenager Billy Gilmour scored twice as Scotland beat Wales 2-1 in Rhyl to make a winning start to the qualifying round for the Uefa Under-19 European Championship.

The former Rangers midfielder was the difference between the sides in the opening match of the qualifiers.

Gilmour put Scotland ahead after an hour but Wales equalised through Liverpool’s Neco Williams.
