Bradden Inman must choose who he will represent.
Football prodigy Bradden Inman has an important choice to make whether he will represent Scotland or Australia in international football as Australia’s March 26 FIFA World Cup qualifier with Oman looms.
According to Fox Sports Inman has so far refused to pledge his allegiance to the Socceroos but will have to make a decision soon if he receives a call up for the qualifier match next month.
The Australian born football player is a rising star as his performances playing with English League One team Crewe Alexandra where he has scored 6 times from 17 appearances.
The attacking midfield could potentially represent Scotland thanks to eligibility from his mother and has represented Scotland in under 19 and 21 competitions in the past.
However the 21-year-old does admit feeling patriotic towards his home country of Australia despite leaving the Newcastle United youths and reserve system for his recently extended contract with Crewe.
Initially his contract was a one-month loan deal but since then he has definitely made his mark in the English league and has had his contract extended until the end of the season. The move has clearly been a successful one with the Adelaide born player proving he has the potential to perform at an international level.
Inman has also represented Australia in under-23’s competition under coach Holger Osieck in March 2011 and admits making the decision will be a tough choice.
“It would be good to play for Australia and hopefully one day I get the chance but I’d still still have to talk it through with people and my family,” he said.
