Watford midfielder Don Cowie has expressed his shock and delight after receiving his call-up to the Scotland squad.
Boss George Burley has added Cowie to his plans to play Japan in Yokohama on Saturday after being hit by a number of withdrawals through injury.
"It was a big shock when I got the call, but I'm over the moon," Cowie told the Scottish Sun.
"It's been a bit of a whirlwind. I got a call from my manager to tell me the news and now I can't wait to go away with the squad.
"I know there have been a lot of withdrawals, but that doesn't take anything away."
