Your Chance Will Come Again
Updated Wednesday, 14th October 2009
11,000 miles for 16 minutes football is a long way but Derek Riordan still has a long way to go to make himself a regular in the Scotland squad.
Hughes said: "I spoke to Derek on the phone and it would be fair to say that he was a wee bit disappointed about the fact he only got just over 15 minutes in the game on Saturday. At the same time, however, he knows that he has got his foot back in the door again as far as playing for his country is concerned and I think that's a sign of the maturity he is starting to show. The Japan game gave him the chance to be around George and the rest of the Scotland coaching staff and they will have seen what kind of guy he is now and how he conducts himself. Derek knows what he has to do - he has to keep scoring goals for Hibs. If he can do that, then he should keep his place in the Scotland squad for the next game against Wales."
