I like to attack. I was a bit exposed on Satur-day night. It’s not the best for me, but I’d do whatever is asked for me for the country.”Euro 2020Report: Euro 2020 qualifying Group H George Patchias – September 11, 2019 Euro 2020 qualifying Group H is being controlled by France and Turkey, but Iceland is still in with a shout.Reigning world champions France ran…“It’s a massive thing to get called up for your country and even bigger to play. I’ll always be happy to pull on that jersey. I’ve loved being back. I hated being out in the international wilderness.”“But I’m an attacking player. I love going forward and scoring goals. I got 10 goals last year and only started playing just before Christmas.”“I’m not blowing my own trumpet, but it shows I can get in the box and cause problems. That’s me scored three goals in four games in the Premier League.”“Having said that, it’s massive for the manager to trust me and know I am capable of doing that. I had it mentioned a few times. I am a Jack of all trades, master of none. It’s not great to hear, but hopefully I can nail down a place in the future.”“I haven’t quite done it for Cardiff yet, but I am getting there and I’d love to do it for Scotland as well.
