Vykintas Slivka played the entirety of Lithuania’s recent international match against Romania, whilst Stevie Mallan, Ryan Porteous and Oli Shaw prepare to face Ukraine for the Scotland under-21s.
The Hibernian trio all played in Scotland’s 3-0 win at home to Andorra in September, with Stevie and Ryan playing in the crucial 2-1 victory against the Netherlands a few days later.
The match in Kiev kicks off at 5pm with Scotland needing to win to keep alive their hopes of qualifying for next summer’s UEFA European Championships in Italy.
Vykintas Slivka featured for Lithuania in their 2-1 loss at home to Romania in the UEFA Nations League on Thursday evening.
The midfielder played the full match for his side and forced Ciprian Tătăruşanu into a save with a shot from outside the box as he tried to level in Vilnius after Alexandru Chipciu’s 13th minute opener.
Arturas Zulpa did find an equaliser for Lithuania in the 89th minute and appeared to have won a point for his country in the process, however, Alexandru Maxim nabbed all three points for Romania with a goal in the fourth minute of injury time.
Lithuania are next in action at home to Montenegro on Sunday.
