Quashie eyes Scotland duty

Quashie has been dogged by a knee injury this season
Portsmouth midfielder Nigel Quashie says he is interested in representing Scotland at international level.

The 25-year-old has won four England Under-21 caps but under new Fifa rules he can switch allegiance as his grandfather is Scottish.

"I have been asked to prove my grandfather came from Scotland, but that is no problem," Quashie told the Daily Express newspaper.

"He was born in Glasgow and I'd be very interested in playing for Scotland.

"I'd never given up hope of forcing my way into the full England set-up but I would consider playing for Scotland."

The new Fifa rules mean that even if a player previously represented a nation at Under-21 or junior level they are no longer tied to that country.
