by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

Steven Naismith has been named in the Scotland squad for their upcoming encounters with the USA and Norway.

Naismith, a squad regular, is part of a 25-man party named by Gordon Strachan for the games later this month.

The international break follows this weekend's Everton match away at Crystal Palace.

The first contest sees a likely clash between Naismith and club mate Tim Howard as the USA visit Hampden Park on 15 November.

The Scots then head to Norway for a second friendly four days later.

Meanwhile, striker Apostolos Vellios has been selected by Greece Under-21s for their games against Sweden and Poland.

Look out on for news of further international call-ups in the coming days.

Scotland: Scott Fox, Matt Gilks, David Marshall, Christophe Berra, Gordon Greer, Grant Hanley, Alan Hutton, Russell Martin, Charlie Mulgrew, Lee Wallace, Steven Whittaker, Charlie Adam, Ikechi Anya, Barry Bannan, Scott Brown, Craig Bryson, Chris Burke, James Forrest, James Morrison, James McArthur, Robert Snodgrass, Steven Fletcher, Steven Naismith, Matt Phillips, Jordan Rhodes.
