Liam Cooper Makes EFL Team of the Season.. But Still Can’t Make a Scotland Squad

Liam Cooper has been named in the EFL Team of the Season – despite being unable to earn a place in the Scotland squad.

The Leeds United defender has had a brilliant season under coach Marcelo Bielsa as his side battle for promotion to the Premier League.

As things stand, Leeds sit third in the English Championship table, one point off Sheffield United in second and five behind league leaders Norwich.

And you can bet they’ll continue to be among the contenders in the run-in – either for automatic promotion or the playoffs.

Cooper has played 31 times for Leeds and has been an integral part of the great work Bielsa is doing with them.

So much so that he’s been named in the EFL Team of the Season as one of two centre backs:

Unbelievably though, he’s still not been able to make a dent on the Scotland team.

He has zero caps despite being named in Scotland squads in the past – and it looks unlikely he’ll get any considering he can’t currently get a call-up for the national team.

Alex McLeish led his side to a 3-0 defeat to Kazakhstan last week before beating San Marino 2-0 with an average display days later.

But Cooper was nowhere to be seen in the squad for either match and you have to assume he’ll continue to be left out as long as McLeish is the manager.
