Leeds United loanee Mustapha Carayol receives Gambia recall

Elland Road

The winger has one cap for The Scorpions.

Leeds United's recent good form has certainly not done their Scottish contingent any harm.

Sunderland loanee Liam Bridcutt has been recalled to the Scotland squad by Gordon Strachan this week. Meanwhile defender Liam Cooper received his first ever Scotland call-up after an impressive season at Elland Road.

Now another Leeds United player has received an international call-up. Muzzy Carayol, on loan from Middlesbrough, has been recalled to the Gambia national team by head coach Sang Ndong.

Carayol has one cap for Gambia - featuring in a friendly against Uganda last June. But he has not featured in the games since against South Africa, Senegal, Cameroon and Namibia.

But Carayol, who was born in the Gambian capital Banjul, has been selected for upcoming Scorpions ties with Mauritania this month and the Leeds winger will be hoping to make his second cap.

He joins Swansea City winger Modou Barrow in the team - which would make a formidable wide attack for the Gambian national team.

Carayol has not been a regular in the starting XI for Leeds recently but may get the chance to face his former loan club Huddersfield this weekend.

Then after that, he will be looking to impress with his country.
