Blackburn Rovers striker Sam Gallagher is preparing to commit his international future to Scotland (Sun).
The forward’s Blackburn Rovers teammate Ben Brereton has recently committed his future to Chile and has appeared at Copa America off the back of it. Gallagher wants to follow a similar path with Scotland.
It’s been reported that the 25-year-old will pledge allegiances to Scotland, should he do enough domestically to receive a phone call from national team head coach Steve Clarke. Born in Devon, the Blackburn Rovers striker has appeared at youth level for England and Scotland.
He has told the SFA he is willing to play for the latter on the senior stage and hopes to do enough to make Clarke’s World Cup 2022 qualifying squads from September. Gallagher scored eight goals with three assists from 39 matches in the English Championship last season, scoring 15 in 83 for Blackburn since joining in 2019.
