Cardiff City Star Gets First Scotland Start

Cardiff City Star Gets First Scotland Start

Cardiff City`s industrious midfielder Don Cowie has been give just rewards for his impressive form this season, winning his first ever competitive start for Scotland. Cowie, who appeared as a late substitute during the 2-2 draw with Czech Republic over the weekend is drafted into the starting XI with Scott Brown and Charlie Adam unavailable for Craig Levein`s side.

Cowie has made just one other start for his country, a 3-0 defeat to Wales where he now calls his home stadium at Cardiff City. He has won caps as a substitute against Japan, Brazil and Denmark previously - but is now looking to establish himself in Levein`s plans by featuring in these competitive qualifiers.

Cowie`s arrival at Cardiff City is surely only as a result of Malky Mackay`s appointment from Watford. Cowie was out-of-contract with the Hornets and jumped at the chance to work with Mackay again, showing himself already to be a fantastic free transfer signing. His work-rate, energy and fitness are exemplary, while he is tidy and efficient in possession, providing good defensive cover and creativity in attack.

The Bluebirds are yet to find the ideal position for Cowie, he has mostly operated on the right of a midfield four, but in not a natural wideman. Nevertheless, he has proved very effective and is a key player in the City starting XI. He has clearly impressed Levein in the Championship, and in training after his back-to-back call-ups to the Scottish National squad.

Congratulations Don, and good luck.
