No matter what team the punters in the Transfer Tavern support, there’s little doubt the upcoming Scotland-English clash is one of the biggest in the British sporting calendar.
With the Tartan Army traveling to Wembley during a time when both nations are at perhaps their lowest ebb in a footballing sense, the fires of international football’s oldest rivalry are always likely to flame up.
Doubts about Gordon Strachan’s future in charge of the Scots have been raised and his selection process throughout his tenure in charge has been questioned.
One of the men to have largely missed out under his stead is Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam.
Despite playing in the Premier League for many a year now, the former Liverpool ace has been roaming in the proverbial international wilderness since his last cap in July 2015.
Now, the 30-year-old has revealed he’s simply desperate to earn his place back in the side in an attempt to add to his 26 caps.
“I want to get back in the Scotland set-up but there is only person that makes that choice, and it’s the manager”, Adam told talkSPORT.
“We will see what happens. Performances like last night will hopefully catch his eye and I will hopefully get back in.
“I haven’t spoken to him since I last played. I have never had a conversation about why I was dropped or left out, which was disappointing because if he had turned around and said, ‘listen, you haven’t been playing enough for Stoke’, then I understand. But I haven’t had any conversations.
“I would be delighted to be involved in it. Playing against England at Wembley would be something special.”
Should Scotland consider bringing Adam back into the fold? Let us know below..
