The 21-year-old is part of Scot Gemmill’s 22-man squad for the game against Greece in Edinburgh on Friday, November 15.

That means the Scotsman, on a season-long loan deal at Fratton Park from Rangers, could miss Pompey’s FA Cup first round trip to Harrogate (November 11) and the League One clash with Fleetwood (November 16).

McCrorie has been deployed as a right-back by Kenny Jackett in the Blues’ past two league outings.
