Cédric and Stuart Armstrong kick-off their respective Nations League campaigns as Saints’ international involvement continues tonight.

First up is young left-back Jake Vokins, who will hope to build on playing the full 90 minutes of England Under-19s’ 4-1 win over Netherlands on Thursday when the young Lions return to action against Belgium in Tubize (6pm BST kick-off).

Cédric’s Portugal are among the top-ranked nations in Group A of the Nations League, who can jump to the top of the standings by defeating Italy in Lisbon, after the Azzurri drew 1-1 with Poland in their opener.

The action gets under way at 7.45pm BST, the same time as Armstrong kicks off for Scotland against Albania at Hampden Park.

The Albanians were 1-0 victors over Israel on Saturday, so could take a commanding lead at the top of the group with another win in Glasgow, where Alex McLeish’s side must bounce back from a 4-0 home defeat to Belgium.
