Scotland coach Gordon Strachan has called up Aberdeen's Kenny McLean and Mark Reynolds, plus Brighton striker Jamie Murphy, for the next month's World Cup qualifier against England.

The national coach today named a 29-man pool for the match at Hampden on June 10. Swansea City's Stephen Kingsley was also included along with four goalkeepers - Craig Gordon, David Marshall, Allan McGregor and Jack Hamilton.

Hibs midfielder John McGinn keeps his place, whilst prospective Hearts signing Christophe Berra is also there.

Scotland currently sit four in qualifying Group F for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. They are six points behind leaders England and two behind second-placed Slovakia.

Beating England would give their hopes of finishing second to secure a play-off a huge boost. The Scots will be out for revenge after losing 3-0 to England at Wembley in November.

Scotland squad to face England: Craig Gordon (Celtic), Jack Hamilton (Heart of Midlothian), David Marshall (Hull City), Allan McGregor (Hull City), Ikechi Anya (Derby County), Christophe Berra (Ipswich Town), Stephen Kingsley (Swansea City), Russell Martin (Norwich City), Charlie Mulgrew (Blackburn Rovers), Mark Reynolds (Aberdeen), Andrew Robertson (Hull City), Kieran Tierney (Celtic), Stuart Armstrong (Celtic), Barry Bannan (Sheffield Wednesday), Scott Brown (Celtic), Tom Cairney (Fulham), Darren Fletcher (West Bromwich Albion), Ryan Fraser (Bournemouth), James Forrest (Celtic), James McArthur (Crystal Palace), John McGinn (Hibernian), Kenny McLean (Aberdeen), James Morrison (West Bromwich Albion), Robert Snodgrass (West Ham United), Steven Fletcher (Sheffield Wednesday), Leigh Griffiths (Celtic), Chris Martin (Derby County), Jamie Murphy (Brighton and Hove Albion), Steven Naismith (Norwich City)
