Earlier this week Gordon Strachan came calling for a couple of local lads playing in the English Championship.
Kevin McDonald, Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Craig Forsyth, Derby County, both from Carnoustie, got the nod from the Scottish gaffer for their Euro 2016 Group D qualifying match against World Cup champions Germany next month.
Ex-Arbroath player Forsyth said: “I’m delighted to get called up for the qualifier. It will be a very tough game but a good experience.”
Midfielder McDonald added: “It’s an honour to get a call up to the National team. It’s something everyone wants to achieve in their career, so to have that opportunity I’m absolutely delighted.”
