Sheffield Wednesday forward Stevie May has been given the opportunity to potentially play against England after another international call-up for Scotland.
May, who was dropped to the bench for the Owls’ 1-1 draw with Charlton Athletic at the Valley on Saturday, had impressed Scotland boss Gordon Strachan during his last inclusion in the squad and has been brought in again for the upcoming Euro 2016 qualifier against the Republic of Ireland and a friendly with Roy Hodgson’s men.
The 22-year-old, who has scored three goals for Wednesday since joining from St Johnstone in the summer, was brought into the international set-up for the first time for Scotland’s recent qualifiers against Georgia and Poland.
Though it would appear unlikely, May could come up against his Sheffield Wednesday team mate, goalkeeper Keiren Westwood, who should be in the Republic of Ireland’s squad for the qualifier at Celtic Park and a friendly at home to the USA.
Scotland squad to face Republic of Ireland and England: Matt Gilks (Burnley), Craig Gordon (Celtic), David Marshall (Cardiff City); Phil Bardsley (Stoke City), Christophe Berra (Ipswich Town), Craig Forsyth (Derby County), Gordon Greer (Brighton and Hove Albion), Grant Hanley (Blackburn Rovers), Russell Martin (Norwich City), Andrew Robertson (Hull City), Steven Whittaker (Norwich City); Ikechi Anya (Watford), Barry Bannan (Crystal Palace), Scott Brown (Celtic), Craig Bryson (Derby County), Chris Burke (Nottingham Forest), Graham Dorrans (West Bromwich Albion), Darren Fletcher (Manchester United), Lewis Macleod (Rangers), Shaun Maloney (Wigan Athletic), James McArthur (Crystal Palace), James Morrison (West Bromwich Albion), Charlie Mulgrew (Celtic); Steven Fletcher (Sunderland), Chris Martin (Derby County), Stevie May (Sheffield Wednesday), Steven Naismith (Everton).
