Sheff Wed keeper Mark Crossley is ready to come out of international retirement.
Mark Crossley says he is ready to come out of international retirement should Wales come calling.
The 37-year-old is enjoying a run of first-team football at Sheffield Wednesday after joining the Championship side on loan from Fulham, and has impressed with his exploits so far at Hillsborough.
Crossley's last of his eight caps came in a friendly against Latvia in August 2004, but the experienced keeper is willing to don his international gloves once more if John Toshack requires his services.
"If Wales have problems I'm only a phone call away and would gladly come back," said Crossley in The Sun.
"I'm going strong, feeling great - and I'm keen to keep playing."
The keeper recently stated he is keen to join The Owls on a permanent basis after successfully going about rejuvenating his career in Yorkshire.
