Manchester United central midfielder Darren Fletcher has been called up to Gordon Strachan's Scotland squad for next month's friendly against Poland, reports BBC Sport.
Fletcher, who has 61 caps for the Tartan Army, has missed out on almost two years of football after being diagnosed with chronic bowel disease ulcerative colitis.
However, he is back now and appears to be in David Moyes' plans as he looks to transform the club's fortunes after such a difficult start to his first season at Old Trafford.
Earlier this month, Fletcher revealed the true extent of his health problems. "You can be running to the toilet 10, 20, 30 times a day and losing a lot of blood," he told BBC Sport.
His international return comes on March 5 in a match which is, so far, the only game Scotland are due to play in all of 2014.
Fletcher was made Scotland captain back in 2009 after Barry Ferguson was axed from the squad and this season has made nine appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils.
Strachan also selected him to regain fitness with the Scotland squad back in October as they took on Croatia and now apparently believes Fletcher is more than ready for a return to the international stage.
His call-up is not the only high profile one, with Sunderland's Phil Bardsley also recalled after Gus Poyet gave him a second chance at the Stadium of Light.
The recall comes just a few days before the Euro 2016 qualifying draw, which is to be made this Sunday.
