Souttar, 21, and 30-year-old Stevenson have been included in manager Alex McLeish’s 24-man group for the friendlies against Peru and Mexico.

Hearts are also represented by goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin, while Hibs’ midfield duo Dylan McGeouch and John McGinn have been picked.

There is, however, no place for Tynecastle skipper Christophe Berra. The 33-year-old centre-half was a mainstay in the national team under previous boss Gordon Strachan, but has been omitted for a second time by McLeish.
