Hibs striker Fletcher happy with international progress

Hibs striker Steven Fletcher is delighted with his Scotland B call-up.

Fletcher will play for the Scotland Under-21s in their crucial qualifier against Slovenia on Saturday and then line up for the B side against the Republic of Ireland next Tuesday.

"I was delighted to get picked," he said. "It shows that Alex McLeish the Scotland manager is watching all of us and giving us our chance. I'm looking forward to that game very much.

"I didn't know anything about my call-up until I saw it on Sky Sports News. The next day the gaffer told me. I didn't know the game was coming up because I was concentrating on the under-21s, but I'm delighted to be in it. Every game you play in is a chance to show what you can do.

"I'm looking forward to it."
