Will the draw be kind to Scotland this time around?

The efforts put in by Scotland Under-21s over the last two European Championships have brought some reward. Despite missing out both times, Scotland will be among the second set of seeds when the draw for the 2015 qualifying groups takes place at the end of the month. Scotland's interim manager of the A Team, Billy Stark has been in charge up till now and his latest team narrowly missed out on a play-off place for this year's tournament despite finishing second in their group.  They have the chance to go one better by qualifying fot the competition when it is hosted in the Czech Republic in two years' time.
