Gordon Strachan and Charlie Adam have not spoken with each other for more than a year, as the latter has been frozen out of the Scotland national team.
Adam first featured for the national team back in 2007, but a player of his quality has managed to appear only in 26 national games so far. He has never scored for Scotland in these games. He has been much more successful in his club career after appearing for the likes of Liverpool and Stoke City in the Premier League. Adam continues to remain an integral part of Stoke City, who have been doing well in the league this season.
Adam is hoping that Gordon Strachan considers him for the upcoming World Cup 2018 qualification matches. Scotland are going through a tough spell which has seen pressure upon the manager rise tremendously in the last few months. Some have even suggested that if Scotland failed to win against England in their next qualification game, it would be the final game for Strachan as the Scotland boss.
The former Celtic manager has been in charge of the national team since 2013, but he has achieved very little success so far. Adam’s last appearance for Scotland was back in 2015 when he featured in the game against Qatar.
“I’m desperate to be a part of it. I want to get back in the Scotland set-up but there is only person that makes that choice and it’s the manager. We will see what happens. Performances like Monday will hopefully catch his eye and I will hopefully get back in. I would be delighted to be involved in it. Playing against England at Wembley would be something special,” said Adam. The Stoke City midfielder also revealed that he has not spoken with Strachan since his last international game.
