Steven Hammell: Motherwell defender drafted in by Scotland

Gordon Strachan has drafted in the 31-year-old full-back as cover with Rangers' Lee Wallace sidelined and Norwich City's Steven Whittaker suspended.

Speaking earlier this week, Strachan said: "We won't take a chance with Lee. We'll have a look at his injury and assess it."

Hammell's only full international appearance came nine years ago when he appeared in a 4-1 friendly defeat by Sweden in 2004 when the team were under the care of interim manager Tommy Burns following the departure of Berti Vogts.

Hammell has also featured in B internationals and has been part of recent squads named by Strachan.

You can follow Scotland v Croatia live on Sky Sports 1 from 20.00 on 15 September

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
