Dundee United striker David Goodwillie has been named in the Scotland squad for the friendly against the Faroe Islands.

Liverpool defender Danny Wilson and Aston Villa midfielder Barry Bannan have also won first call-ups to the full squad.

Goodwillie has scored eight goals in 11 games for United.

Wilson, Goodwillie and Bannan are the only newcomers but manager Craig Levein has left out a number of regulars including Kenny Miller, Kris Boyd, Allan McGregor and Shaun Maloney.

Cardiff winger Chris Burke, Derby wide man Kris Commons and Hearts striker Kevin Kyle have all won recalls for the Pittodrie clash on Tuesday.

Recent additions to the squad such as Jamie Mackie, Cammy Bell and Matt Gilks keep their places.

Steven Whittaker and Steven Naismith are the only two Rangers players in the squad with Levein admitting he took the Ibrox club's European schedule into account.

Scotland squad to face Faroe Islands in a friendly at Pittodrie on November 16:

Bell (Kilmarnock), Gilks (Blackpool), Gordon (Sunderland); Bardsley (Sunderland), Berra (Wolves), Caldwell (Wigan), Hutton (Tottenham), Whittaker (Rangers), Wilson (Liverpool); Adam (Blackpool), Bannan (Aston Villa), Burke (Cardiff), Commons (Derby), Dorrans (West Brom), Fletcher (Manchester United), Morrison (West Brom); Goodwillie (Dundee United), Kyle (Hearts), Mackie (Queens Park Rangers), Naismith (Rangers).
