Man United youngster rejects Scotland call up as he’s waiting for England chance

Man United midfielder Scott McTominay has turned down the chance to play for Scotland and will instead wait to see if England come calling

Scotland didn’t have a great time of it when announcing their latest squad.

Scott Brown was initially left off the list completely, which turned out to be an accident, while Andrew Shinnie was mistakenly named rather than his brother Graeme.

So the last thing interim Scotland boss Malky Mackay needed was a cold dose of rejection, which came in the form of a rejected call up.

You try saying no to those eyes

Man United midfielder Scott McTominay has rejected the chance to play for Scotland and is waiting to see if an England chance materialises, according to The Scottish Sun.

The report claims he was offered the chance to play against Holland next week but turned down the approach.

It’s fair to say the Lancaster-born youngster has gone completely under the radar when it comes to the international stage.

He’s yet to be capped by England or Scotland at any age group, although he did attend training camps with the Scottish youth sides.

That’s probably got something to do with the fact that the 20-year-old went from being 5ft 6in to 6ft 3in in just 18 months, so completely had to re-shape his game.

This season McTominay has played four times, including a full 90 minute appearance against Benfica in the Champions League on Tuesday.

So what do you reckon? Is a late dash for the England 2018 World Cup squad on the cards?
