During the international break, there should be a host of Rangers stars in action for their respective nations.

One of those to be called up for duty, is Scott Arfield.

He has been named in the Canada squad to face French Guiana on 24th March.

The fixture is taking place over 4,000 miles from Glasgow, in Vancouver.

Despite being born in Scotland, the 30-year-old qualifies for Canada through his father.

Since making his debut against Mexico in 2016, he has accumulated 13 caps, scored one goal, captained the team and been nominated for 2018 Player of the Year.

This upcoming fixture is an important one for the nation.


A win would secure qualification for both the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup and the 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League Group A.

Contrastingly, a defeat would leave them in danger of missing out on one or both.

Encouragingly, though, Arfield will have fond memories of facing French Guiana.

He scored his only international goal against them, during the group stage of the 2017 edition of the Gold Cup.

Alongside the Gers midfielder, are a few familiar faces to Scottish football fans.

Kilmarnock’s Liam Miller gets a spot. So too, does Hearts’ Marcus Godinho.

While the stakes are high, the Canadians should be confident of securing all three points.

They are currently ranked 68th in the world according to the Elo rankings, while their opponents languish in 130th.
