Robbie Savage wants to end his feud with Wales boss John Toshack and come out of international retirement.
The Blackburn star quit the Wales scene in March after a row with Toshack, who told him he would not be involved in two World Cup qualifiers with Austria.
"I shouldn't have reacted as I did. It was an over-reaction," the 30-year-old midfielder told the News of the World.
"I believe I can go on for another four or five years yet and that is what I really want to do."
After the bust-up Savage said he would not play for his country while Toshack was boss.
He later hinted that he would return - but only if the coach made the first move.
However, the former Leicester and Birmingham midfielder has now made himself available for the Millennium Stadium clash with England on 3 September - and said he could now play on for his country until 2010.
He added: "I've got 39 caps and I don't want to tell my little boy Charlie as he grows up that I could have made a lot more but I cut my career short became of my temper.
"I believe I am the best midfielder of my type in the country.
"I am ready to return and, although I still believe I was good enough to be in the squads against Austria, that is no longer the point.
"What matters is that I want to make myself available to the nation again. I know now that is the right thing to do.
"There is no reason for the continuing silence between myself and the manager and I hope he includes me in the next squad."
