Scotland Squad announced for Brazil Friendly


Scotland manager Craig Levein has announced the squad that will face the stars of Brazil on the 27th March at the Emirates Stadium.

St. Johnstone’s Murray Davidson, Everton’s Iain Turner and Blackburn’s Grant Hanley have all been added to the squad and could be handed their memorable first cap against the samba stars.

Watford midfielder Don Cowie and Blackpool left-back Stephen Crainey have been added to the squad after last month’s 3-0 victory over Northern Ireland in the Carling Nations Cup.

Despite struggling with a knee injury, Sunderland keeper Craig Gordon has been included in the squad, but it is almost certain that Rangers Number One Allan McGregor will don the Scotland jersey for the game, with Turner coming on later in the match.

Over 30,000 tickets have been sold for the glamour friendly in London, and tickets are still available.

16 out of the 24 man squad all ply their trade outside of Scotland. While those who play in Scotland, six are from the Old Firm, with only two out with the Glasgow Giants.

Full Squad

Charlie Adam (Blackpool), Barry Bannan (Aston Villa), Phil Bardsley (Sunderland), Christophe Berra (Wolves), Scott Brown (Celtic), Gary Caldwell (Wigan Athletic), Kris Commons (Celtic), Don Cowie (Watford), Stephen Crainey (Blackpool), Murray Davidson (St Johnstone), Craig Gordon (Sunderland), Grant Hanley (Blackburn Rovers), Alan Hutton (Tottenham Hotspur), Chris Maguire (Aberdeen), James McArthur (Wigan Athletic), Allan McGregor (Rangers), Kenny Miller (Bursaspor), James Morrison (West Bromwich Albion), Steven Naismith (Rangers), Robert Snodgrass (Leeds United), Iain Turner (Everton), Steven Whittaker (Rangers), Danny Wilson (Liverpool), Mark Wilson (Celtic).
