The mercurial midfielder has not shown his true ability since arriving in The Premiership at Manchester United.
However, in a statement that is sure to be used against him, Veron states that he is more worried about how he looks in the eyes of his adoring Argentine populace.
"Everyone will now be going on about me playing against England," said Veron.
"But I am not playing against England. I am playing for my country, Argentina.
"I have no feelings for the English people.
"Of course I know players in the England team. Some of them very well, because they play for my club.
"But my concern is for my country. Our people back home will expect us to win."
The former Lazio star once more hinted that his future is less than settled, and that a return to Italy is on the cards.
"I would like to talk about my future but I don't think this is the right time," added Veron.
"Maybe after the World Cup.
"There are some clubs in Italy interested in me. For now we will just have to wait and see."
