Scotland’s new manager, Alex McLeish confirmed that he'll name the twenty-one year old in the squad that'll face Costa Rica in a friendly later in March.
England has shown little interest in calling up McTominay who has become a core player in the United starting lineup over the past few months. He’s played 16 times this season for the Red Devils.
McLeish said: “He will be in the squad. I don’t think that’s the world’s best kept secret at this particular moment. Scott was very receptive. I looked him in the eye and he gave me passion about playing for Scotland. I saw the passion and I really felt that we had nailed it that day.”
Even if McTominay does play for Scotland in the friendly against Costa Rica on March 23, he can still play for England in the future as it isn’t a competitive game.
