Andreucci had previously played for the England U15s before switching allegiances to Scotland, who he represented in a tournament against Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

But now he will join with Ireland, named in their U19s squad. Andreucci will take part in their Loughborough University training camp under manager Tom Mohan. A fellow Scotland prospect is in the Leeds United academy, former Motherwell player Stuart McKinstry.

Club captain Liam Cooper will represent Scotland at Euro 2020, the Leeds United defender picked for the nation’s first major tournament since 1998.
