Marshall in Scotland squad

Canaries keeper David Marshall has been named in George Burley's Scotland squad for the friendly against the Czech Republic in Prague on May 30. Marshall (pictured) may have to settle for a place on the bench, with Sunderland's Craig Gordon the number one choice, for a game Burley is using as a warm-up for the World Cup qualifiers which start in September with a trip to Macedonia.

Marshall, 23, made his only two appearances for the national side in 2004. He has been in competition with Allan McGregor for the back-up role, but the Rangers stopper has been ruled out by injury. Alex Pearce, who finished the season on loan at Carrow Road, has been included in the Scotland U21s squad for a friendly against Norway on May 20.
