Huddersfield's Rhodes chuffed with Scotland call-up

Huddersfield Town youngster Jordan Rhodes was delighted to be called into Craig Levein's Scotland senior squad yesterday.

The 21-year old has been included in the Scotland squad for next week's friendly with Cyprus in Larnaca and admits it is a great thrill to get the chance to play and train alongside the likes of Manchester United's Darren Fletcher and Liverpool's Charlie Adam.

"It's a real honour to be picked for the senior squad," he told the Scottish FA's official website.

"Just five months ago I wasn't involved in any kind of international football so to be part of the set-up and to get some recognition from the senior squad is a boyhood dream.

"There was a bit of media talk and speculation about a potential call-up but I tried my best not to let it affect me and to remain completely focused on my club football until the squad was officially announced.

"To be in the pockets of the likes of Darren Fletcher and Charlie Adam for the week will be a fantastic experience.

"They are household names and play at massive clubs but the team is littered with some great players so I'm looking forward to getting an insight into how they go about their work and I hope to learn from them.

"I can't wait to meet up with the squad."
