SCOTLAND hero Innes Cameron is convinced Scot Gemmill's youngsters can go all the way in the European Under 17 Finals in Croatia.

The Scots got off to an acceptable start when they finally broke down the resistance of the Faroe Islands with two second-half goals to secure a 2-0 opening game win.

Next up for Scotland is a crunch game tomorrow against Hungary – who stunned one of the favourites for the tournament, France, with a shock 3-2 win.

It means Scotland would be on the brink of qualifying for the quarter finals if they defeat the Hungarians in Lucko.

That win against the Faroes was secured by Kilmarnock striker Cameron climbing off the bench and scoring within four minutes.

And with Celtic duo Kerr McIlroy and Robbie Deas back, along with Rangers striker Zak Rudden who were all suspended for the first game, Scotland should be stronger for Saturday's showdown.

Cameron is convinced Scotland – who won their seventh game in a row at Under 17s level – are well equipped to have an impressive tournament.

He said: "I don’t see why we can’t go all the way. If we get to the quarter-finals we’ll have a tough opponent, but if we stick to our game-plan then we can go far.

"We just had to win, no matter how we did it. It’s a good way to kick off the tournament. We’ve got Hungary and France now, who you would expect to be a lot more open in the way they play. It’s a great incentive to know that if we win on Saturday then we’re pretty much there.

"I suppose I did my job against the Faroes. It was frustrating and just a case of us keeping going. We had a few good chances, but we were confident it would come. It can be difficult to play against a team that sits in like that, but the trade-off when they’re that compact is that they leave space in the wider areas and I thought we were able to exploit that at times.

"Getting the first goal obviously made things a lot easier."

And Cameron, who is tipped as a hot prospect at Rugby Park, insists team spirit is key to Scotland performing well.

He said: "We’ve got a good group of boys and we’ve found different ways to win games. We’re all tight off the pitch and I think that helps too.

"A lot of the team have been together for a number of years. That unity’s half the battle.

"It’s help me a lot playing Under-20 football this year and getting a taste with the first team. I definitely feel like I’ve progressed.

"It’s not as physical when you come back to play at this level. Lee McCulloch just told me to keep doing what I’m doing."
