Scotland manager Craig Levein is genuinely excited about seeing Blackpool winger Matt Phillips in international action this weekend.

The 21-year old England-born attacker will make his Scotland debut against the USA in Florida on Saturday and Levein cannot wait to unleash him on the Americans.

“I’m excited to see him play. He’s got genuine pace and real quality,” Levein said.

“Like Shaun Maloney and James McArthur, there are guys here who’ve had the best season of their careers but Phillips excites me.

“We’ll need to see how well he does. We’ll see what Saturday brings.”
