Scotland's squad to face Switzerland includes Gary Teale and Gary Naysmith.
Walter Smith has named Wigan winger Gary Teale in the Scotland squad to face Switzerland on March 1.
Teale has been rewarded for his impressive form in The Premiership this season with a first ever call-up, as Smith looks to work out his best team ahead of the European Championship qualifying campaign.
Everton defender Gary Naysmith has also been recalled to the squad for the friendly at Hampden Park, having not featured since the game against Italy last March.
Naysmith has been plagued by injuries since the 2-0 defeat in the San Siro and has played just once for the Goodison Park club this season.
Aberdeen star Jamie Smith is also included after a string of fine performances for The Dons, giving him the chance to resume his Scotland career after three years in the international wilderness.
Cardiff goalkeeper Neil Alexander will also be hoping to earn his first cap for his country, but there was no place for in-form Colchester striker Chris Iwelumo.
Alexander (Cardiff City), Gordon (Hearts), Marshall (Celtic), Alexander (Preston), Anderson (Aberdeen), G Caldwell (Hibernian), S Caldwell (Sunderland), Dailly (West Ham), Naysmith (Everton), Pressley (Hearts), Webster (Hearts), Weir (Everton), Ferguson (Rangers), Fletcher (Manchester United), Hartley (Hearts), McCulloch (Wigan), Murray (Rangers) Quashie (West Brom), Smith (Aberdeen), Teale (Wigan), McFadden (Everton), Maloney (Celtic), Miller (Wolves), O'Connor (Hibernian), Riordan (Hibernian).
