HUDDERSFIELD Town striker Jordan Rhodes will be named in the Scotland squad to face Australia after being left out of the Under 21 pool.
Rhodes, who made his full Scotland debut as a late substitute against Cyprus in November, will be among the players Craig Levein selects for the August 15 friendly at Easter Road.
Scotland Under 21s play Belgium at East End Park the previous night and head coach Billy Stark named his squad with Town defender Murray Wallace named for the first time.
Blackburn and Fulham have both reportedly targeted 22-year-old Rhodes, who scored 48 goals last season for Town and Scotland Under 21s.
Stark, who also called up Stoke midfielder Jamie Ness, said: "That season will be difficult to repeat but in the previous two seasons he scored one in two, which is a fantastic average at any level.
"He is a goalscorer and a chance is a chance, and I don’t have any doubts that if he gets a chance he will score in the Championship.
"You could maybe be a bit surprised he hasn’t had a move after the season he has had. The window is open until August 31 so it still wouldn’t surprise me.
"But he is such a grounded boy and he is not one who would be neglecting his work with Huddersfield waiting and wishing he was going to get a move to the English Premier.
