SCOTLAND will face Belgium in an international friendly match at Hampden Park in September. 

The Scottish FA announced the glamour tie on Monday after the UEFA Nations League draw left Alex McLeish's side with two free fixture dates.

Roberto Martinez's star-studded side will travel to Glasgow on Friday 7 September, three days before the opening Nations League clash against Albania. 

The last time the Belgians visited Scotland, goals from Steven Defour and Kevin Mirallas gave them a 2-0 win during qualifying for the 2014 World Cup. 

Scotland manager Alex McLeish named his squad for March friendlies against Costa Rica and Hungary today, featuring six new faces.

And the former Rangers boss is looking forward to taking on the side currently ranked fifth in the world by FIFA.

“I am delighted to have secured such high quality opposition for our free fixture date at the start of our UEFA Nations League campaign," he said.

“As a side currently ranked in the top five in the world, Belgium are the standard to which our players should be aspiring and set the bar in terms of what we are trying to achieve with our play.

“With the fixture kicking off the crucial UEFA Nations League campaign, there is no better opportunity for our players to stake a claim for a place than by proving their mettle against players of this calibre.”
