The teenager came on for Scotland this week against Denmark.

It has certainly been a week to remember for Nottingham Forest winger Oliver Burke. The teenager made his senior international debut for Scotland this week, coming on to replace goalscorer Matt Ritchie in the 82nd minute of his nation’s 1-0 win over Denmark.

It represented the peak of a massive rise from the 18-year-old, who has had a breakthrough season at with Forest this term.

After the game he spoke about his pride at playing for his country. Eurosport quote Burke as stating:

"I showed them a little glimpse of what I've got. That's what I am about: in behind, taking players on.

"I'm more than ready. I feel I showed that in training and let's see where it gets me.

"I've got great belief in myself but it's a great bunch of boys as well, which always helps.

"I'd be delighted to carry on this career. To play for Scotland is what I want to do."

The strong and pacey wide-man has taking his chances at Forest this term. He has scored twice in 16 appearances this term.

His form has even earned him a new long-term contract at the club.

Burke has been one Forest player to benefit from the transfer embargo the club currently find themselves under.

Without big bucks to replace West Ham summer signing Michail Antonio the club and former manager Dougie Freedman turned to loanees and internal promotions – with Burke being one of the more impressive.

Hopefully this Scotland cap is only the first of many and that Burke can fire Forest to a promotion challenge next term.
