Marshall makes the Scotland squad

David Marshall

Just when you thought everything was doom and gloom, David Marshall was included in the Scotland squad for the match against Croatia next Wednesday.

The 23-year old keeper has been in excellent form this season, and fully deserves his chance to show George Burley what he can do.
Full Scotland squad:

Goalkeepers: Craig Gordon (Sunderland), David Marshall (Norwich City), Allan McGregor (Rangers).

Defenders: Graham Alexander (Burnley), Russell Anderson (Sunderland), Christophe Berra (Heart of Midlothian), Gary Caldwell (Celtic), Christian Dailly (Rangers), Alan Hutton (Tottenham Hotspur), James McEveley (Derby County), Stephen McManus (Celtic), Gary Naysmith (Sheffield United).

Midfielders: Scott Brown (Celtic), Barry Ferguson (Rangers), Darren Fletcher (Manchester United), Paul Hartley (Celtic), Lee McCulloch (Rangers), Stephen Pearson (Derby County), Barry Robson (Celtic), Gary Teale (Derby County).

Forwards: Kris Boyd (Rangers), Steven Fletcher (Hibernian), James McFadden (Birmingham City), Shaun Maloney (Aston Villa), Kenny Miller (Derby County), Garry O’Connor (Birmingham City).

  1. Yep, a predicted inclusion in the squad. As a Scotland fan, I hope that he is given at least 45 mins in Prague to show what he can do- his last cap was in the dark days of Berti Vogts.

    Has he been impressing down at Carrow Road? Funnily enough, I follow Dunfermline and we have your former keeper Paul Gallacher playing for us- Im delighted you released him! Quite why he’s in the Scottish First I’ll never know- good enough for the Scottish Prem, even though I know he never quite made it down there.

  2. Marshall’s been great for us, definitely one of the more consistent performers. I think he needs to work on crosses a bit more as he always looks a little lost shall we say when a big deep ball comes into the box, and he could command his penalty area better but I think we’ve finally found our long-term replacement for Robert Green.

    I think the problem Gallacher always had was simply replacing Greeno, and in a team that was really, really struggling as well. He wasn’t the best under pressure either if memory serves.
