Lucas Neill - Club or Country?
Lucas Neill says he will continue to play for Australia if picked. Australia's next game is on March 26th, sandwiched between West Ham's away fixtures to Everton and Sunderland.
People will say 'why would you want to go and play for Australia in the middle of two English Premier League games?' Because I'm playing for Australia and I want to go to the World Cup," the West Ham captain said.
"It's an honour, it's a privilege and I'm sure there are millions and millions of others who would want to be doing what we are doing. I'm not taking it for granted.
"If it was him (Curbishley) going to represent England he wouldn't have an argument and that's the only case we have to put forward to him."
