Southampton striker Che Adams was recognized for international honors ahead of next summer’s European Championship.
Adams, 24, has scored three goals in his last four games to bring Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side from 18 to 16 points and start the weekend in the top four.
And its shape is likely to lead to a different approach by Scotland to representing a maternal grandparent country in the euro.
Che Adams could be in Scotland after an excellent start to the season
Adams has scored three goals in his last four Premier League games for Southampton
Adams previously opposed Scotland’s offer but that may change now with the prospect of playing in a major tournament for the first time.
And Saints boss Hasenhuttl will face Wolves on Monday evening, without a doubt the former Birmingham City striker has what it takes to be an international goal – no matter which country he played for.
‘Our team has shown in the past that we now have two caps with England and many other international players in our squad. If you do well in the Premier League, anything is up to you, ”he said.
“First and foremost, the most important thing is that he continues to develop his game. I think he took a big step forward this season after a tough first. But he never stopped working hard and I think that’s the secret to his success.
The Saints’ manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl, has pledged to assist Adams in his call-up
“We’ll definitely give him the support he wants, and then it’s about him – showing himself, learning quickly, getting better and getting more and more into the positions where he can score.”
However, the Austrian coach will not influence Adams on which international route to follow.
He explained: ‘Some of the decisions are up to the player and this is one of them. He has to make this decision himself.
‘He just has to focus on his job here and international football can be a bonus. But as a club manager I can’t get involved. ‘
