Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has not ruled out playing for England if France overlook him

Daily Echo: Morgan Schneiderlin wheels away to celebrate putting Saints ahead against Norwich. Morgan Schneiderlin wheels away to celebrate putting Saints ahead against Norwich.

MORGAN Schneiderlin has not ruled out making himself available for England if he continues to be ignored by France.

The 24-year-old thinks he qualifies for England through FIFA’s five-year residency rule, despite playing in UEFA competition for France at U17, U19 and U21 level.

“Some people tell me I am, yes, so I think I am,” he said.

Asked if he would ever make himself available for England, he added: “Never say, never. Don’t give me any time limit, I’ll just see.

“I need to keep focused and finish as high as possible [with Saints] and then we’ll see after the World Cup.”

Schneiderlin has been excellent for Saints in the Premier League but does not think national team manager Didier Deschamps, the former Chelsea and France midfielder, has ever been to see him play.

“Of course it’s frustrating,” he continued. “It’s a dream for everyone to play for his country, for me too. I was picked for [French under-21s] when I was playing in League One which showed they kept an eye on me.

“But they changed everything with the under-21s, people who knew me from under-16, 17 and 18.

“The France manager makes his choice and he has his team. He has a group of 30 players that he trusts and will take and I’m not part of that.

“That’s life. I left France very young and maybe because I played in the second division they lost me a bit and prefer other players who play in France. That’s not up to me, it’s people’s tastes. I just do my best.

“It’s up to me to work hard and if one day he thinks I’m ready to be part of his team he will pick me. But at the moment I’m just trying to focus and do the best that I can.”

While the likes of Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Jay Rodriguez and Luke Shaw have all made their England debuts this season, Jose Fonte has also been ignored by his country.

“That’s the mentality in France and Portugal,” continued Schneiderlin. “More opportunities are given in England.

“In England if you have two months of playing very well you’re ready and on the list to play for England but that’s not the case in France.

“Even if me and Jose have three good years we’re still not in our national team, but that’s life. Maybe we’re unlucky to come from France and Portugal!”

While his lack of international recognition is a frustration, Schneiderlin does not regret moving to Saints from RC Strasbourg six years ago.

“I’m very happy to have made the decision at 18 to come to England and to Southampton, I’ll never forget what Southampton did for me, they changed me as a player and made me a better player,” said Schneiderlin, whose English is fluent.

“It was difficult to leave my family and friends but I was ready and I grew as a man. It could have gone the other way with everything that happened to the club, administration, but some good people got the club.”

Fittingly, it was Schneiderlin who got the Ralph Krueger era off to the perfect start with his fifth-minute goal against Norwich.

“It was a good goal, we started the game well,” he said. “After the goal we didn’t perform very well and the gaffer wasn’t very happy at half-time. He said we needed more energy and needed to move the ball and keep it better.

“We played at 50 per cent of what we can do but did better in the second half, apart from the last five minutes. We kept the ball and scored some goals.

“We made mistakes, of course we need to be more clever and keep the ball in better areas. But it shows just the strength of teams in this league, they have character and they never give up.”

It was thanks to Saints’ England strikers that the points were secured, before Sam Gallagher, surely another future international, finished Norwich off.

“Jay is amazing and Rickie’s the type of player they don’t have apart from Andy Carroll,” said Schneiderlin. “He’s a finisher, he will score goals and he had a great impact.

“I’m sure Adam is already on the plane and there’s Luke Shaw as well.  There are many more to come, look at the right-back position with Calum and Clyney.

“It’s amazing the competition they have, they push each other. There are many more to come in the national team, that’s for sure.”

From an England point of view they could do a lot worse than approach Morgan. I have been a big fan of his since he joined us (especially as it meant he snubbed Arse-nal). IMHO he has been our best player in the Liebherr era especially in terms of consistency. France's loss = Saints gain. Apparently he's easy on the eye too (according to the Mrs anyway).

FIGHT FOR ENGLAND MORGAN - YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE !!

See Below :


Alices Dad used to post - What's happening ?

SAINTS have had a successful Season - FACT. One week it is all doom and gloom that we have nothing to play for - a couple of WINS and we are ready to take down Manure. (Moyes is a football genius ! )

It has been successful - but with 8 games to go - the missed opportunity of the WEMBLEY APPEARANCE in one or both Cups still wrangles Supporters.

Seed has lost his usual enthusiasm on this Forum - and when hard core Supporters travel to Sunderland away in the Cup - it is not surprising that there is a reaction.

That is not the whole story though - I followed the Cup Runs and with Supporters out of position it was a very quiet St Mary's in one game with tiny Yeovil making all the noise.

OUR MAGNIFICENT AWAY SUPPORT has come of age and a Record Number of WINS have been achieved.

OUR HOME SUPPORT has been mixed. The NORTHAM has not lost its buzz but with key persons moving over to ITCHEN NORTH to get the interaction with the Away Support - it can and does affect the dynamics.

Regarding the PUBS - We have lots of Supporters everywhere - but when the regulars relocate - we get a situation where Norwich Supporters overran the Chapel before the last game and as long as they are pulling pints - then behind the bar they don't care. It does provide at atmosphere however where is is ready to kick off at short notice.

The upshot of all this is that this emboldens the Away Support and may have allowed them to get on Top. Staying quiet at Home Games is not an option - the Team can feel the positive vibes from the Supporters otherwise we will turn to an Everton type Library - See You Tube (Saints Away)

Remember the Pompey Away Game - there was so much uncoordinated chanting - that's because Saints Support is made up of lots of different factions - some larger them others - often with Leaders - but no Firm as such - which is the safest way to operate. Even solo Operators are out there in the Pubs and in the concourse. SAINTS SUPPORTERS ARE SMART and always one step ahead. The lot down the road are not so bright.

COMMERCIALLY - we have such a lot to develop - let's hope we can achieve the dream. STEP UP RALPH KRUEGER.

SO FAR NO WORD HAS BEEN MENTIONED OF AMBITION - Let's hope we can attract Quality in the Summer and take the Players further afield to develop the fan base. The Goalkeeping and CB positions need scrutiny.

THEY SAY YOU ARE NEVER TOO OLD TO BE A SAINTS SUPPORTER - BUT WE ARE LOOKING FOR LEADERSHIP ON THE TERRACES - PARTICULARLY FROM THE NORTHAM.

POTENTIAL RED ARMY1's - Now is the chance to shine and they will.

The Players will regard this Season as a stopping stone to success with the ENGLAND inclusions. If we beat Manure in the final game will we be on the Pitch or will the Season drain away to polite applause.... ?

YOU DECIDE !!!

I don't think he would be cover for Gerrard. Gerrard gets forward more . Morgan is a holding midfielder so the rivalry would be with Carrick. So the question is who is better? That's very staightforward then. Morgan plays and Carrick provides the cover from the bench.

Great player and a top bloke. That goal was a masterpiece with the Saints' brand of football all over it. Morgan saw what was unfolding and made the run - and what a finish. He's got it all and I hope we will be watching him play for many years. Only just had a chance to comment on Saturday's game probably already been said many times but JRod was superb as well - unbelievable work rate. Pity we don't have a more imaginative national team manager we would have 4 players on the plane for sure still think only AL will go and the donkey Carrol will win out over RL. But RL deserves it more than anyone for where he's come from and what he has achieved. And a more imaginative England manager would see in MS one of the best midfielders in the land and urgently speaking to him about the possibilities of playing for England.

As a Frenchman and Saint Fan it pain me not to see him playing for France but 3 months ago his Didier Deschamps mention his name in Canal Football club and I know Morgan know that so for him saying that is being ignored it's nonsense ! Obviously when you have a players like Pogba, Matuidi, Cabaye, Rabiot, Kongdogbia, Mvila, Grenier, Chantome who are better than him it's difficult to break into the team I mention before that he could play for England and let's be honest here he's better than Cleverley and Carrick !. I really don't understand him trying to prove a point or slagging off the system or maybe the coach, I think he should let his feet do the talking and and if nothing happen try to play for England. If you don't believe me about the players mention go check them on youtube you'll see that they are better than Morgan. !

I thought someone had proved on here that he was 100% no longer eligible to play for any nation other than France. Can the DE make certain one way or the other?

However, if Alsace gained independence from France, as some in these parts want, Morgan could be captain and I could get a run out down the wing.

We'd be able to take part in the WC qualifiers in 3-4 years' time and, if Alsace played England, the locals would be singing: 'Strassie from Alsace makes Adam look .........'

Naaaah, maybe not, but a boy can dream - even in his fifties!

Well my friend it's because we are lucky to have more choices unlike England ! Ask Strasbourg Saint it can confirm that for you. For Morgan it's practically impossible for him to play for France we have to many good players who play in top side in Europe and are in Champions League and Europa. Now the question is would you pick Pogba who is on fire for Juventus at the moment and played in Champions League and now Europa League or Morgan Schneiderlin who only play in the PL and have good stats

No doubt France is awash with top midfielders. Which ones are better or more suited to playing in Dechamps' team is subjective. What is true is that both England and France have, over the years, had managers and FA administrators who seem to have selective vision for and against certain players.

England ...... Osgood (4 caps), Hudson (2), Le Tiss (8)
France (and I know the debate which was had here at the time) Ginola (17 - any after the Bulgaria game in '93?), Cantona (45) but how many were gained after he came to England?

His girl friend has given him carte blanche to move too so I think it's a fait accompli now.

What goes on with France is weird. Its not just Morgan. They seem to overlook a lot of players. If he was English he would have been played to stop him "deffecting" if nothing else.
I’d love to see him play for France but the sad fact is they have an embarrassment of riches in the midfield just like the Spanish. Having said that, I agree with you it’s a surprise they have not given him a sniff to tie him down.

Personally I think Morgan is one of our best players and also one of the most loyal who has been with us all the way on our amazing journey. I hope he stays a Saint for the rest of his career. However. . He is French. . That is where his heart is. Stick it out for the French national team. It will happen and everyone knows he is good enough. Coyrs!!!

Say it as it is, Seed but, until Alsace gets its independence, those you're referring to include Morgan - oh, and killered, of course.

I just wish they would give up the idea that owning a car means you can drive. No self-respecting car dealer would sell a large lump of mobile heavy metal to a Frenchman, it's right up there with selling guns to American high school kids.

Great player and a top bloke. That goal was a masterpiece with the Saints' brand of football all over it. Morgan saw what was unfolding and made the run - and what a finish. He's got it all and I hope we will be watching him play for many years. Only just had a chance to comment on Saturday's game probably already been said many times but JRod was superb as well - unbelievable work rate. Pity we don't have a more imaginative national team manager we would have 4 players on the plane for sure still think only AL will go and the donkey Carrol will win out over RL. But RL deserves it more than anyone for where he's come from and what he has achieved. And a more imaginative England manager would see in MS one of the best midfielders in the land and urgently speaking to him about the possibilities of playing for England.
Alan Shearer went for SRL without hesitation on MoD, but the long-haired one voted for Carrol.

I'm guessing his heart is with the French national team. He should hold out for it...

..if he can just keep on doing what he's doing (ie improving)...he'll get his chance as sure as oeufs are oeufs.

stras do you qualify for Alsace then? haven't you played a competitive match for the peoples republic of Southampton?

seriously I have been saying for ages that Spider should play for England, however as much as we may want it, he is better than the current bunch after all, and Spider seems open to the idea, I`m not sure most English fans would be open to the idea. shame really because he would be great in an England shirt and it would keep him away from the complete mess that is the French national side, they may have some good players but you just know they are going to implode at some point.
What about Shrek? He's an alien but he still gets in the side.
Horse, I've been here nearly 6 years but might be disqualified for having played Southampton Sunday League Div. 6 in the early 1980s. I'll have to ask UEFA.

No real need to state the obvious, we are not that daft. I think any true England fan wants the player to play for the shirt and not just to get some international caps.

No real need to state the obvious, we are not that daft. I think any true England fan wants the player to play for the shirt and not just to get some international caps.

Well you will probably never get a better chance than now. The Ruskies are busy trying to prove that part of another country is theirs just by taking a vote in the part they want. Why not give it a go.
I'm off to form the Alsatian Popular Front as I write. My demands will include:
1. A free independent Alsace
2. Moragn as captain of the national team (and me on the wing)
3. Our own, national language (no, not Alsatian - English)
4. The pound
5. The Queen as head of state
6. Free beer (English) for all Alsace passport holders, with me as President of CAMRAA - the Campaign for Real Alsace Ale
stras do you qualify for Alsace then? haven't you played a competitive match for the peoples republic of Southampton?

seriously I have been saying for ages that Spider should play for England, however as much as we may want it, he is better than the current bunch after all, and Spider seems open to the idea, I`m not sure most English fans would be open to the idea. shame really because he would be great in an England shirt and it would keep him away from the complete mess that is the French national side, they may have some good players but you just know they are going to implode at some point.

Horse, I've been here nearly 6 years but might be disqualified for having played Southampton Sunday League Div. 6 in the early 1980s. I'll have to ask UEFA.

6. Free beer (English) for all Alsace passport holders, with me as President of CAMRAA - the Campaign for Real Alsace Ale
stras do you qualify for Alsace then? haven't you played a competitive match for the peoples republic of Southampton?

seriously I have been saying for ages that Spider should play for England, however as much as we may want it, he is better than the current bunch after all, and Spider seems open to the idea, I`m not sure most English fans would be open to the idea. shame really because he would be great in an England shirt and it would keep him away from the complete mess that is the French national side, they may have some good players but you just know they are going to implode at some point.
What about Shrek? He's an alien but he still gets in the side.
Horse, I've been here nearly 6 years but might be disqualified for having played Southampton Sunday League Div. 6 in the early 1980s. I'll have to ask UEFA.
I played in the New Forest League Divisions four & three in the nineties, maybe we should set up a Seniors Saints Online team?

I reckon I could manage five minutes per half, maybe four games in a season spread over nine months to ensure plenty of recovery time between games.
You'd get a full 90 down the road but your quality would be wasted.

I see 4 of the 5 below the fish fiddling mongs play tomorrow. The dream is still alive!
If TPFKARTSNINZ wants to play for the skunts because he wishes to assist their demise into oblivion, then I'm all for it, if however it's just to play Conference football then I'm very anti it!
Saints Need Physical and Mental Toughness could play for the Skates, he is nearly fifty, still playing football and knows absolutely everything there is to know about football, more than anyone else on here or so he claims.

Can the DE make certain one way or the other? However, if Alsace gained independence from France, as some in these parts want, Morgan could be captain and I could get a run out down the wing. We'd be able to take part in the WC qualifiers in 3-4 years' time and, if Alsace played England, the locals would be singing: 'Strassie from Alsace makes Adam look .........'

Stras....both Seedhouse and myself will be attending the Etihad. I'm planning to have a sponsored eat-and-drink-a-thon down the curry mile afterwards to celebrate the win. I trust I can count on your sponsorship? :0)

Bill and Seed, it sounds tempting. I'm sure the boys will be up for it. It'll be a bit of a dash up there. I'll have a rental car and we're staying in Oldham on Friday evening. However, we have to get back to Berkshire on Saturday night so that Little Young Strassie can play footy on Sunday morning.

My chauffeur is driving Small and myself up early on Saturday and we're staying in Bolton. Could do an early curry though?

Good plan. If he's up for it, maybe we could get Retford on board. He's sure to know the best place in town and it would be interesting to hear the two of you debate the wonders of Thatcherism :)

We could form a seance and invoke the spirits of Maggie T and Lord Anthony Wedgewood Benn. That would make for a spicy curry night out.

You up for it?
