Wallace Hopes To Be Involved Again
Updated Monday, 12th October 2009
Getting a tast of international football is addictive and Lee Wallace wants some more to feed his habit.
Lee Wallace is hoping that being involved at the last minute in the Scotland team that lost 2-0 to Japan will not mean he will become Scotland's latest one-cap wonder. The Hearts full-back finally managed to get into George Burley's squad after a number of withdrawals from his squad chosen for the trip to Japan has suggested those who played well in the game would continue to be part of his plans going forward.
"...keep my fingers crossed and hopefully catch the eye and stay in the frame for Scotland"
Wallace said: "I will try to play well at club level, keep my fingers crossed and hopefully catch the eye and stay in the frame for Scotland. I have missed out on a few squads but was happy just to keep playing well with Hearts. This shows the Scotland gaffer is keeping a close eye on me and my progress. Left-back is a position where there are options for the manager and I know I was fortunate to get a game. But you never know what can happen."
Former Scotland Under-21 star Wallace admitted he was nervous walking out to represent his country. He said: "I knew I'd be a bit nervous - that happens in every game. But as soon as the whistle went I was fine. You grow in confidence as soon as you get your first pass off. I kept concentrating because Japan are hard opponents, quick and comfortable on the ball. We might have held on for a draw but the last 10 minutes were disappointing. We now have to pick ourselves up and move on."
