LUFC McCormack scores on international comeback
Ross McCormack marked his recall into the Scotland national side with a goal within ten minutes of coming off the bench.
McCormack earned his first cap in fifteen months when he came on for the last twenty-three minutes of Scotland`s 3-1 win over Australia at Easter Road.
Scotland had already turned around a one-goal deficit to lead by the time McCormack came off the bench and he sealed the win for Scotland with thirteen minutes remaining.
McCormack went past the Australian central defenders before firing past Reading goalkeeper Adam Federici.
The 25 year old looked like he had a point to prove to manager Craig Levein having been snubbed by the Scotland boss last season despite scoring 19 goals for Leeds.
His appearance was his eighth international cap for Scotland and his second goal since making his senior debut against the Czech Republic in May 2008.
Paul Green came off the bench to play the final thirty minutes of Republic of Ireland`s 0-0 draw in Serbia and win his thirteenth international cap since making his debut in May 2010 against Paraguay.
Darren O`Dea and Andy Keogh, who spent time on loan with Leeds last season, also played in the game for Ireland.
Aidy White played 90 minutes for the Republic of Ireland under 21 side on Tuesday night, as their hopes of reaching the 2013 European championships were dealt a blow with a 1-0 home defeat to Turkey.
Elsewhere, former Leeds United winger Max Gradel scored his first international goal for Ivory Coast.
Gradel played the 90 minutes in Moscow against Russia as Ivory Coast came from behind to claim a 1-1 draw.
