Clarets International-Fletcher in Scotland Call-Up

Scotland have a friendly match against Czech Republic at Hampden Park on Wednesday 3rd March.

This will be the first game in charge for new Scotland gaffer, Craig Levein and he has named Steven Fletcher in the squad.

Fletcher, who scored his 11th goal this season for the Clarets against Aston Villa on Sunday will be hoping to play for Scotland and pick up his 7th cap.

Our other Scottish Internationals though missed out on selection.

Steven Caldwell(groin) and Graham Alexander(calf) are of course still sidelined with injury and our new signing Danny Fox has also been overlooked this time.

At Celtic Fox was selected for the first time for Scotland's friendly against Japan in October 2009 but had to withdraw due to an injury. Fox finally made his debut for Scotland in a 3-0 defeat to Wales on 14 November 2009 but has not featured for the National side since.

Fletch has impressed me this season. A lot. His finishing is a little questionable (does he panic/get excited?) but this can probably be improved. In addition to the obvious quality he has with his first touch - I am pleased with the positions he has taken up to allow him to score the goals. 4 of his goals have probably come from taps in. Right place at the right time ( although the assists have also been impressive). When did we last have a striker to score the tap ins? payton?

Jury out for me on Fletch but he HAS scored goals in a struggling side so am prepared to be positive. I am sure it takes a bit of time to settle down when moving to a new club so pretty sure he will be stronger next season. Whatever division we're in.

Hope you don't get relegated, but if you do, I can't help but think they'll be a few Premier League sides interested in Fletcher. He has some improvements to make in his overall play, but he's proven he can score at this level.
