Leeds United defender Liam Cooper reacts on Twitter after receiving first senior Scotland call-up

Leeds United midfielder Liam Bridcutt was also included in the squad.

Leeds United defender Liam Cooper has expressed his delight on social media site Twitter, after receiving his first call up for Scotland.

Cooper has been a regular in Leeds’ starting line-up this season, and Scotland boss Gordon Strachan has been impressed by the 24-year-old’s displays.

Cooper has been named in the Scotland squad, which will face Denmark later this month.

Cooper’s only previous international experience has come at youth level. The former Chesterfield man made five appearances for Scotland’s under-17 side, and he was also capped once at under-19 level.

Cooper is joined by his Leeds teammate Liam Bridcutt in the Scotland squad for the match against Denmark.

Nottingham Forest’s Oliver Burke and Brighton & Hove Albion’s Will Buckley are also in the squad, meaning that there is plenty of Championship representation in Strachan’s side.

Scotland also have a friendly against Czech Republic earlier in the week, but Cooper and Bridcutt did not make the squad for that match.
