Scotland's manager has given a vote of confidence to beleaguered Dundee United goalkeeper Paul Gallacher.
Paul Gallacher's poor clearance allowed Austria to score
Gallacher has been named in the Scotland Future squad to face Northern Ireland despite suffering a nightmare week.
A costly mistake against Austria came just a few days after a similar error for his relegation-threatened club.
It led United manager Ian McCall to drop Gallacher for Saturday's league clash with Motherwell.
But national goalkeeping coach Jim Stewart backed Gallacher as Vogts and McCall became embroiled in a war of words about the player's loss of confidence.
McCall said Gallacher should not have been chosen against Austria, but the German has shown his faith in the 23-year-old by naming him in an experienced squad for the match against Northern Ireland on 20 May at Firhill.
I have asked mainly the English-based players to take part
Scotland boss Berti Vogts
Vogts has departed from his usual policy of using the Future team for up-and-coming prospects by including a number of established full internationals from English clubs.
The English season ends earlier than in Scotland, so Vogts is anxious to help keep players sharp for the Euro 2004 qualifier against Germany on 7 June.
Vogts said: "I have asked mainly the English-based players to take part in this match, which is essential to keep up their level of match fitness, but I also want some Scottish-based players to be involved to give them added experience."
There had been suggestions that Aberdeen Russell Anderson had been unhappy at being overlooked for the squad to face Austria.
But a statement from Aberdeen said that the only comment he wanted to make at this stage was that: "I'm delighted to be back involved with the international set up after injuries kept me out of recent games."
The players will stay together for two days after the Northern Ireland match for additional training.
Vogts will then name his final squad to play against New Zealand on 27 May and Germany.
He will also check on the progress of other Scottish players, in particular those from Celtic and Rangers who have cup finals to play and those who are involved in the English play-offs.
