Former Dundee and Tottenham defender Steven Caulker says he’s ready to represent Scotland at Euro 2020 if Steve Clarke comes calling.
The defender is best known in the SPFL for his brief stint at Dens Park in 2018. Down south, he has represented some of the biggest clubs, including Tottenham and a brief loan stint with Liverpool.
Now he ply’s his trade in Turkey with Alanyaspor, whom he has been with since 2019. He has some international caps for England at youth level and the former Tottenham man has also played for Great Britain at the Olympics.
Most notably, Caulker scored in his only England outing against Sweden during a 4-2 defeat, the game which Zlatan Ibrahimović scored his wonder overhead-kick.
With Scotland having qualified for Euro 2020, Caulker says he’s ready to make a national switch and represent Scotland, who he’s eligible for through his grandmother.
“I was asked to play for Scotland at the age of 19, but I had pressure to go down another route,” the former Dee and Tottenham defender said. “Things have obviously changed and I would love to play for Scotland.
“I’ve made my feelings clear, so it’s about continuing what I’m doing at the moment and keeping my fingers crossed for the best. The most positive thing for me right now is that I’m at a club that are currently top of the league and finished fifth and reached a cup final last year.
“I’m at a club who gave me an opportunity when other clubs wouldn’t go near me, so I’m very grateful to them.”
