Newcastle Duo Get Scotland Call (23/8/17)

Grant Hanley and Matt Ritchie have been called up by Scotland manager Gordon Strachan for the coming international break.

The next international break of the year is almost with us, and Scotland face Lithuania in Vilnius on September 1 in a World Cup qualifier, before then hosting Malta three days later at Hampden Park.

There are a number of changes for Strachan in the squad with a few players missing out on the group from last June, but with some players returning to injury they find themselves back in contention and there's also a first call up for Millwall goalkeeper Jordan Archer.

Scotland squad:

Goalkeepers:

Jordan Archer (Millwall), Craig Gordon (Celtic), Allan McGregor (Hull City).

Defenders:

Ikechi Anya (Derby County), Christophe Berra (Heart of Midlothian), Grant Hanley (Newcastle United), Russell Martin (Norwich City), Charlie Mulgrew (Blackburn Rovers), Andrew Robertson (Liverpool), Kieran Tierney (Celtic), Steven Whittaker (Hibernian).

Midfielders:

Stuart Armstrong (Celtic), Barry Bannan (Sheffield Wednesday), Scott Brown (Celtic), Tom Cairney (Fulham), Darren Fletcher (Stoke City), Ryan Fraser (Bournemouth), James Forrest (Celtic), James McArthur (Crystal Palace), John McGinn (Hibernian), Matt Phillips (West Bromwich Albion), Matt Ritchie (Newcastle United), Robert Snodgrass (West Ham United).

Forwards:

Steven Fletcher (Sheffield Wednesday), Leigh Griffiths (Celtic), Chris Martin (Derby County), Steven Naismith (Norwich City).
