Gordon Strachan has called-up Ross McCormack and Paul Caddis to his Scotland squads for the upcoming friendlies against Denmark and Czech Republic.
It was announced this morning that Fulham striker McCormack – who has 19 league goals this season – would replace the injured Steven Naismith, whilst full-back Caddis replaces Steven Whittaker.
Birmingham City’s Caddis is yet to make a senior appearance for the Scotland, whilst McCormack has only 11 caps to his name.

Finally Ross McCormack is in the Scotland team!

Ross McCormack "added to Scotland squad." He'd be entitled to tell the manager he'd rather not bother.

Strachan was under increasing pressure over his decision to originally leave out McCormack, along with the likes Lee Wallace and Graeme Shinnie.
With Whittaker injured whilst training with Norwich, and the news on Kieran Tierney’s injury still unclear, the inclusion of either Wallace of Shinnie would make more sense, but the Scotland boss has instead opted for the untried Caddis.
What do you think of his selection?
