Robert Snodgrass, Russell Martin and Steven Whittaker have all made Gordon Stachan's Scotland squad to face England in next month's friendly at Wembley.

The Norwich City trio will all hope to feature in the highly anticipated friendly that takes place on August 14 – just three days before the Canaries' Premier league opener at home to Everton.

Strachan's 29-man squad will aim to prepare for their World Cup qualifier at home to Belgium in September, although their hopes of making the following summer's finals in Brazil are already over.

It was Snodgrass' goal and a superb defensive display from Martin on his first competitive start that helped Scotland to a shock win in Croatia last month.

England will announce their squad on Wednesday, while Wes Hoolahan and Anthony Pilkington have already received Republic of Ireland calls for their friendly in Wales on the same night.
