2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ Qualifier
England vs. Scotland
Friday 11th November 2016, kick-off 7.45 pm
Gordon Strachan has named his squad to take on England at Wembley Stadium next Friday night.
Scott Brown is back in the squad after announcing his retirement from international football earlier this year.
The Celtic midfielder has been in impressive form of late and joins Swansea's Stephen Kingsley who comes into the squad at left back with Andrew Robertson and Kieran Tierney both injured.
Gordon Strachan said: “Scott (Brown) retired in August when he was in a different place to where he is now.
“At that time it was beneficial for him and Celtic that he retired from international football.
“We respected that but Scott is in a different place now and feels he can help us in our quest to get to a major finals.
“We’re happy to have Stephen Kingsley in the squad. He is a player who features in the English Premiership regularly for Swansea and if you do that, you’re not a bad player.
“We saw Stephen close hand when he played against France in June and he did well. He’ll integrate well within the squad.
“We’re all looking forward to playing England at Wembley. We all feel that, after the last few results, it’s time to start winning again.
“Everyone loves this fixture and we’re the lucky ones who get the chance to participate in this game and put in a good performance.”
