Three teams have advanced to the semifinals at the Toulon Tournament, and Scotland can thank their West Bromwich Albion winger for being one of the trio.

The Scots reached the final four on Saturday, after earning a 2-1 victory over South Korea in their Group B finale.

Baggies winger Oliver Burke looked transformed at the Stade Parsemain, when he provided Scotland with a brilliant run in the eighth minute, which proved to be the difference for the European side.

The win means Scotland finishes atop Group B on seven points, leaving hosts France left out of the semifinals.

England and Mexico have already advanced as well, with the Three Lions meeting Scotland in the next phase.
