I've come across some interesting players who are eligible to play for Scotland over the last wee while. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

They’re unlikely to play for us for various reasons but I have nothing else to do with this information so thought I'd share it here. 🌏
🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇦🇪 | Ali Saleh (20).

The golden boy of middle-eastern football. Saleh was born in Dubai to a Scottish mother and spent his childhood summers in Edinburgh. A gifted winger, he made his debut for Al-Wasl just one day after his 16th birthday.

He has played 4 times for the UAE.
🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇫🇷 | Charles Boli (22).

Boli was born in Dundee during his dad Roger's stint in the city. A versatile wide-player, he's on the books at RC Lens and made his breakthrough last season, helping them earn promotion to Ligue 1.

He is uncapped by any nation at any level.
🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇳🇱 | Thomas Kirkpatrick (16)

One for @OwenJamesBrown. A left back currently in NEC Nijmegen’s academy. The 16-year-old now plays with the Eerste Divisie club's u18s.

He played five times for the Dutch u15s in 2019, however, he has previously trained with Scotland.
🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇫🇮 | Onni Valakari (21)

Son of Simo Valakari, Onni was born during his dad's 4-year spell in Motherwell. The midfielder has 32 senior goals to his name and has played in Finland, Norway and is now in Cyprus.

Valakari has played 22 times for Finland at youth level, sadly.
