Mark Ridgers was carried off injured against Belgium under-21s

Hearts goalkeeper Mark Ridgers was carried off with a knee injury as Scotland Under-21s suffered a 1-0 friendly defeat against Belgium.

Ridgers was injured in a first-half collision with a Belgian forward as he slid in to take the ball at East End Park.

The Tynecastle number two immediately looked in some distress and was carried off on a stretcher. The initial diagnosis from the Scotland medical staff was a knee injury but a scan will be needed in the coming days to determine the severity.

Tottenham goalkeeper Jordan Archer came on for Ridgers in the 42nd minute and was beaten by a clinical strike from Ziggy Badibanga.
