Sunderland striker Steven Fletcher and Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher were both included in the Scotland squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Wales and Belgium.

Steven Fletcher has not featured for his country since informing the SFA by text message that he did not wish to be selected for a game against Northern Ireland in February 2011.

But the 25-year-old, who has scored five Barclays Premier League goals for Sunderland in just four appearances, returns after holding clear-the-air talks with Scotland boss Craig Levein on Monday.

Darren Fletcher makes his comeback after a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a chronic bowel condition.
