Defender hoping for another cap against Nigeria amid match-fixing claims over game

Christophe Berra will be looking to add to his international caps when Scotland take on Nigeria in a friendly at Fulham tonight. 

The Town defender is included in Gordon Strachan’s squad for the game, with Blues’ Supporters’ Player of the Year capped 29 times so far. 

The last of those appearances was as a substitute in the 1-0 win over Norway in November when he became the first Town player to represent Scotland at senior level since John Wark in 1983.   

Tonight’s game has added significance after reports emerged that it was under investigation by the National Crime Agency regarding match-fixing claims. It was also reported that no Scotland player is part of that investigation.

Also on international duty is Michael Crowe, who is away with Wales’ U19 squad for their European Championship 2014 elite qualifying group games in Portugal.

Wales face Belgium in their first game, then Portugal on Friday and complete the group against Greece on Monday.
