LEEDS United’s Liam Cooper and Liam Bridcutt have both been called up to Gordan Strachan’s Scotland squad for the home friendly with Denmark on March 29.

Strachan has named two different squads for his side’s two forthcoming friendlies which begin with a trip to the Czech Republic on Thursday, March 24.

And while Bridcutt and Cooper have not been named in the squad to travel to Prague, both could feature against the Danes on Tuesday, March 29.

Cooper could be in line for his full international debut for Scotland having already played for the country’s under-17s and under-19s sides.

The centre-back was born in Hull but qualifies to play for Scotland through his grand-parents.

Bridcutt was born in Reading but qualifies to play for the Scottish national side through his Edinburgh-born grandfather.

The Sunderland loanee midfielder already has one cap for the Tartan Army, which he earned against Serbia in March 2013.
