Hamilton defender Aldin El-Zubaidi, who has yet to make his first-team debut for the club, has been selected to join the Iraq squad training camp.

Uncapped El-Zubaidi will join Akram Salman's national squad in Dubai ahead of friendly matches against Cape Verde and Congo later this month.

El-Zubaidi, who turned 20 this week, moved to Scotland with his family from Baghdad when he was three years of age.

He joined Accies' youth academy in 2011 and has been on loan to Arbroath.

El-Zubaidi spent the first half of the season with the Red Lichties, playing 19 times to help them mount a promotion challenge in Scottish League Two.

He has also been on the bench several times with Accies' first team.
