Hibs striker Steven Fletcher has been called up to the Scotland squad to face Norway in the forthcoming World Cup qualifier.


The 21-year-old Hibees hitman has been drafted in following a decent start to the season, as Scotland look to build on their 2-1 win over Iceland last month.


It's the fourth squad in a row to include Fletcher, he has already been capped once against Croatia, and will be hopeful of adding another cap to his collection.


Fletcher has scored two goals so far this season for the Hibees and will look to add more for the Scots.


Wolves striker Chris Iwelumo has been handed a deserved call-up after smashing 8 goals in 7 games in a supercharged start to the season.


One surprise inclusion is Bristol City and former Hearts full back Jamie McAllister, who's one and only previous cap was against Trinidad and Tobago four years ago, when Berti Vogts was in charge.


The full Scotland squad is as follows:


Goalkeepers:

Craig Gordon (Sunderland)
Allan McGregor (Rangers)
David Marshall (Norwich City)

Defenders:

Graham Alexander (Burnley)
Darren Barr (Falkirk)
Christophe Berra (Heart of Midlothian)
Kirk Broadfoot (Rangers)
Gary Caldwell (Celtic)
Jamie McAllister (Bristol City)
Gary Naysmith (Sheffield United)
David Weir (Rangers)

Midfield:

Scott Brown (Celtic)
Kris Commons (Derby County)
Darren Fletcher (Manchester United)
Paul Hartley (Celtic)
Shaun Maloney (Celtic)
James Morrison (West Bromwich Albion)
Barry Robson (Celtic)
Kevin Thomson (Rangers)

Forwards:

Kris Boyd (Rangers)
David Clarkson (Motherwell)
Steven Fletcher (Hibernian)
Chris Iwelumo (Wolverhampton W)
James McFadden (Birmingham City)
Kenny Miller (Rangers)
