Watch live soccer action here on Live Sport Network.
Derby County's Kris Commons and Falkirk's Darren Barr earn a surprise call up to the Scotland national team who take on Northern Ireland at Hampden Park on Wednesday.
The Derby County winger is Englishman by birth but qualifies for Scotland through his grandparents while Falkirk captain Barr caught the eye of manager George Burley with some impressive displays in the Scottish league last season.
Burley revealed that he had watched Commons for a long time having come across the winger when he plied his trade with Nottingham Forest. Commons moved to Derby County this summer and Burley contacted the 24-year old about the possibility of playing for Scotland.
Burley's other surprise call up, Preston defender Callum Davidson could be out of contention after suffering from a knee injury during Preston's Championship match against Crystal Palace. The 32-year old had not played for Scotland since October 2002.
Northern Ireland boss Nigel Worthington has called up Damien Duff and Dean Shiels for this game. Keith Gillespie is also in the squad, but is unlikely to play as he has an ankle issue.
