Scotland boss Craig Levein has confirmed he plans to give Huddersfield hit-man Jordan Rhodes his first cap against Cyprus next month.
Levein is ready to reward the in-form Rhodes, who has scored 16 goals for club and country this season, with a game against Cyprus to ward off possible interest from England.
The Oldham-born forward, who is a regular in the Scotland Under 21 set-up, can still switch allegiances, but Levein is ready give him senior recognition in the friendly game against Cyprus on 11th November.
Rhodes will then link up with Billy Stark's Under 21 squad for their crucial Euro clash with Holland three days later.
"Jordan will join us for the week in Cyprus and I'll probably give him half an hour," Levein told the Sunday Mail.
"But he will join up with the Under 21 squad as soon as he gets back."
