Craig Levein believes new boy Matt Phillips and James Forrest represent the future for Scotland.

Blackpool striker Phillips, 20, has been handed his first call-up by Levein for next week's friendly in Slovenia, while Celtic winger Forrest will miss the U21 clash with Holland as Levein wants to include him in his preparations for the World Cup qualifiers which begin in September.

The Scotland boss said: "James could have been playing for the under-21s for Billy against Holland but I feel he fits the bill of an international football player and I consider him and Matt Phillips two who are very much in mind for playing international games in the future."
