Wales have called up Hull goalkeeper Boaz Myhill for the first time in their squad to play Luxembourg in a friendly on 26th March.
The 25-year-old former Aston Villa trainee was born in California, brought up in England and has a Welsh mother from Llangollen.
He has triple qualifications - but after hedging his bets on several occasions - and having already played for England Youth - he has decided to throw his lot in with John Toshack's squad.
PersuadeToshack said: "We have been trying to persuade him to play for us for a long time, and on a couple of previous occasions he has held back.
"He can play for three countries, but maybe his Welsh mum has had a word."
Toshack has left Derby striker Robert Earnshaw out of the Wales squad for the first time in six years.
Earnshaw had a difficult season with the Barclays Premier League's bottom club, and has spent much of the campaign on the bench.
"I would like to look at other players this time," Toshack said.
"There are several young strikers around who merit a chance now. Earnshaw has had a difficult time this season for his club and for Wales.
"I have spoken with 'Earnie' on a number of occasions in the past 12 months, and it has not been a particularly good time for him."
Toshack has picked an experimental squad for the friendly in Luxembourg - including Doncaster pair Steve Roberts and Brian Stock.
Roberts has one cap, three years ago against Hungary - while Stock has played for the Under 21s. Stockport defender Ashley Williams also comes in for the first time, while Portsmouth's Richard Duffy also wins a recall.
Injury-plagued Swansea midfielder Owain Tudor Jones also gets a call-up.
Toshack, however, maintains that the Under 21s' Uefa championship qualifier in Bosnia on the same night is more important - because the youngsters have a great chance of qualifying for the finals in Sweden 2009.
It means that senior internationals Wayne Hennessey and Chris Gunter have returned to the Under 21s to boost the chances of Brian Flynn's side.
Full squad Myhill (Hull), Price (Derby), Duffy (Portsmouth), Eardley (Oldham), Morgan (Peterborough), Nyatanga (Derby), Ricketts (Hull), S.Roberts (Doncaster), A.Williams (Stockport), Crofts (Gillingham), A Davies (Notts Forest), S Davies (Fulham), D Edwards (Wolves), Fletcher (C.Palace), Tudor Jones (Swansea), Koumas (Wigan), Ledley (Cardiff), Stock (Doncaster), Cotterill (Wigan), Easter (Plymouth), Eastwood (Wolves), Nardiello (Barnsley).
