Wolves midfielder will never play for Ireland

Wolves midfielder Jamie O’Hara, has closed the door on any international future with the Republic of Ireland, stating that he will never declare for Ireland.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, O’Hara feels that he can break into the England setup and it would be unfair on Irish born players if he where to come into the Ireland squad. “I want to play for England. It’s always been my aim to play for England since I was a kid. I’ve played for England at all levels,” O’Hara admitted.

“And it would be unfair to play for Ireland. I love all my Irish family. I speak to them all the time. They would love me to play for Ireland. But it would be unfair on the Irish players.”

He also said: “I definitely have a chance to be in and around the squad. I was in the same Under 21s side as James Milner, Adam Johnson, Joe Hart, Micah Richards and Theo Walcott.

“To get in the England squad you need to be in a winning team and to score and create goals. I’ve got that in my game.”
