Keeper David Marshall has vented his frustration at being an unused substitute in Scotland's recent trip to Japan.
The Cardiff City ace made the 12,000-mile round-trip, but failed to play despite George Burley only having 17 fit players at his disposal.
Sunderland's Craig Gordon played the whole 90 minutes meaning the Marshall and Aberdeen shot-stopper Jamie Langfield watched on from the sidelines.
Marshall had hoped to at least play having travelled all that way, although he has no thoughts of turning his back on his country and is ready to seize a chance when one comes his way.
"The Yokohama trip was pretty frustrating, having travelled all that way without playing," explained Marshall.
"There were only 17 players there and I thought I might get half an hour.
"But I'm proud to play for Scotland regardless of that I still want to be part of the squad.
"I have to keep working and make sure I am ready when the chance comes again."
