Doncaster Rovers captain Brian Stock has denied that he is considering stepping down from international football.
The 28-year-old midfielder was included in the Wales squad for the Euro 2012 qualifier against Bulgaria in Cardiff, but has withdrawn due to a lack of match fitness.
Stock insists that he still has hope of representing Wales in the future, and revealed caretaker manager Brian Flynn has told him the door is still open.
He said: "At this moment in time, I'm not prepared to finish playing international football.
"I did speak to Brian Flynn about that and I said to him that I don't want to close the door on international football.
"I just felt that, at this time, I wasn't ready for it. If I go to Wales, you want to give 100 per cent.
"I felt that I wouldn't do myself justice if I was with the squad.
"I'd always like to be considered for the squad. If it meant that I wasn't selected for future squads because of me pulling out, then fair enough, but it wouldn't be through me not wanting to go."
