McTominay in Scotland squad
Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has been called up to the senior Scotland squad for the first time, for friendly matches against Costa Rica and Hungary later this month.
The 21-year-old, who has been associated with the Reds since the age of five, was born in Lancaster but qualifies for Scotland as his father is from Glasgow.
His inclusion is recognition for an impressive first season with the Reds, since being promoted to Jose Mourinho’s first-team squad. It also seemingly ends speculation about his international future, as he is also eligible to play for England.
After stepping up from the Reserves towards the end of last season, McTominay made his debut as a substitute against Arsenal in May last year and started the Reds’ final league game of 2016/17 against Crystal Palace.
McTominay has been a regular in the squad this term and has made 16 appearances for United in all competitions so far in 2017/18. He has also started the last five games for the Reds, including Saturday’s 2-1 win over Liverpool at Old Trafford.
His impressive displays and intelligence on the ball in the engine room have caught the eye and he received a deserved nomination for his first Player of the Month award in February, which was arguably the best month of his career to date.
