CHERRIES star Ryan Fraser almost made a dramatic entrance after coming off the bench to earn his second full cap for Scotland in a friendly against Holland yesterday.

Fraser, a 71st-minute replacement for Celtic winger James Forrest, went close to scoring with his first touch in the Tartan Army's 1-0 defeat at Pittodrie.

However, after fastening on to Kieran Tierney's superb through ball, Fraser – playing on his old stomping ground in Aberdeen – poked his effort narrowly wide.

Lyon's Memphis Depay netted the only goal of the game for Holland, with Cherries defender Nathan Ake playing the full 90 minutes for the Dutch.

Ake, who is again expected to feature when Holland meet Romania in Bucharest on Tuesday, yesterday took to Twitter and posted: "Not the best game but happy with the win."

Fraser, who joined Cherries in a £400,000 move from Aberdeen in January 2013, won his first cap when he came off the bench in Scotland's 2-2 draw against England at Hampden Park in June.

Meanwhile, Cherries striker Lys Mousset crowned France's 3-0 win over Bulgaria in a European Under-21 Championship qualifier with a stunning individual goal.

Mousset came off the bench to replace Celtic's Moussa Dembele after 63 minutes and showed some excellent footwork before netting with a finely-taken strike from just inside the 18-yard box.

His goal in the MMArena in Le Mans put the finishing touches to France's fourth successive group win. Victory saw them move two points clear of Slovenia, their opponents in Dom?ale on Monday.
