Burke made his debut for Gordon Strachan’s side in March, aged 18, when he came on as a substitute in the friendly win over Denmark at Hampden Park.

The speedy Nottingham Forest winger, who started his career at Mowbray Rangers, was named in a 28-man squad as the Scots travel for two friendlies in six days.

Scotland face Italy in Malta on Sunday before taking on France in a second friendly the following Saturday in Metz as both opponents warm up for the upcoming European Championships.
