Somebody Has To Blink First
Steven Fletcher should make the call to Crraig Levein as he won't be picked for Scotland until he does Steven Fletcher insists he still wants to play for Scotland but claims the decision is not his to make. The Wolves striker told national team manager Craig Levein he did not want to be picked for the squad for a Carling Nations Cup game against Northern Ireland in February and has not been involved with the national side since. Levein says Fletcher must make first contact if he wants to return to the international fold - but the striker does not believe he turned his back on the country in the first place. He said: "Everyone wants to play for the country, and I do want to play for Scotland, but I feel like it's out of my hands. People say it's in my hands but I don't believe it is. I've read him saying I have to make myself available for selection again but I feel I never made myself unavailable. Will I make the call? I just feel as though I'd be made to look like an absolute k***, know what I mean? Even that doesn't bother me all that much because I want to go and play for my country but it just makes it look one way when it was another. I don't want people saying I turned my back on my country because I didn't."
