Commons Called-Up By Scotland

Commons Called-Up By Scotland

Kris Commons hasn't represented Scotland at any level to date but he is a surprise inclusion in the Scotland squad to face Northern Ireland next week.

The 24-year-old, who was born in Mansfield, signed for Derby from rivals Forest this summer and receives his first Scottish call from George Burley. Commons will hope to make his debut in the friendly in order to try and force his way into the reckoning for the Scots World Cup qualifying campaign.

Scotland squad:
Goalkeepers: Craig Gordon (Sunderland), David Marshall (Norwich City), Allan McGregor (Rangers)

Defenders: Darren Barr (Falkirk), Christophe Berra (Heart of Midlothian), Gary Caldwell (Celtic), Callum Davidson (Preston North End), Stephen McManus (Celtic), Kevin McNaughton (Cardiff City), Gary Naysmith (Sheffield United), Steven Whittaker (Rangers)

Midfielders: Scott Brown (Celtic), Kris Commons (Derby County), Darren Fletcher (Manchester United), Paul Hartley (Celtic), James Morrison (West Bromwich Albion), Gavin Rae (Cardiff City), Barry Robson (Celtic), Kevin Thomson (Rangers)

Forwards: Kris Boyd (Rangers), David Clarkson (Motherwell), Steven Fletcher (Hibernian), James McFadden (Birmingham City), Kenny Miller (Rangers)
