Leeds winger Robert Snodgrass has spoken of his pride at being called up to the Scotland squad for the first time.
The 22-year-old has caught the eye of coach George Burley after a number of excellent performances that have helped Leeds to top spot in League One.
Snodgrass also caused the Liverpool defence problems when they travelled to Elland Road in the Carling Cup, and the former Livingston star could make his international debut against Japan a week on Saturday.
"I'm really pleased," said Snodgrass, who earned two Under 21 caps last year.
"You want to play for your country and it would be a great honour and a proud moment for me.
"I'm grateful that Scotland have been keeping tabs on me, and it's a nice reward to get called up.
"It will be a great experience being around the senior squad, and it's another opportunity for me to learn from some good players."
Snodgrass was substituted late on during the Whites' 1-1 draw with Carlisle on Tuesday, but he is expected to return for the top-of-the-table clash with Charlton at the weekend.
