James Morrison says he has no regrets over opting to play for Scotland as opposed to pursuing an international career with England.
The West Brom midfielder, who was born in Darlington but qualifies for Scotland through his Scottish grandparents, is expected to line-up for Gordon Strachan's side against the nation of his birth in the friendly at Wembley next week.
The 27-year-old, who helped Scotland beat Croatia in a World Cup qualifier in June, believes he has proved he is good enough to have earned an England cap.
"As a kid growing up in Darlington, I was very close to my family and their Scottish roots," Morrison told the Sun. "My grandparents are both Scottish - that's one of the reasons why I decided to do what I did.
"However, looking back I probably would have had a chance to play for England by now... Garth Crooks certainly thought so."
Last season, BBC pundit Crooks criticised England boss Roy Hodgson - who used to manage Morrison at West Brom - for not picking the midfielder, despite him having already played 27 times for Scotland.
"Any publicity is good publicity," added Morrison. "I had a good laugh at Garth's comments. But my opportunity to play for Scotland came a long time ago and I'm glad I took it.
"I have never regretted my decision and I'll have no mixed emotions at Wembley."
