Scotland name seven uncapped in latest squad

John Souttar, Lewis Morgan and Lewis Stevenson earn their first call-ups for the Scotland national team.

Scotland have named seven uncapped players in their squad for the upcoming friendlies against Peru and Mexico.

Hearts defender John Souttar, Lewis Morgan of Celtic and Hibernian left-back Lewis Stevenson are among the new call-ups for the games in South America.

Jon McLaughlin and Dylan McGeouch, of Hearts and Hibs respectively, Aberdeen's Graham Shinnie and Millwall goalkeeper Jordan Archer round off the newcomers.

"I'm really excited to work with the players included. They have all been guys who have been in really good form for their clubs," national team manager Alex McLeish told the Scottish FA's official website.

"I've known Lewis since he was a kid and he's been very consistent. I've rarely seen a full-back play at such a level throughout a season. So many legends of the game have also echoed my sentiments.

"John Souttar is a good young prospect and been playing under Peter Grant at the Under-21s, progressing very well.

"I love to see young players getting a chance and Lewis Morgan is certainly someone who has emerged."
