Grant Hanley endured mixed emotions during the defeat against Wales

Hanley, 21, has seven caps for his country so far.

"It's a few years since the last Scotland-England game at Wembley so I'm definitely looking forward to that," Hanley told the Lancashrie Telegraph.

"First and foremost I've got to get myself concentrated on here at Blackburn, getting my fitness up, minutes on the pitch and looking forward to the start of the season.

"As long as you are playing consistently and regularly with your club side, you've always got half a chance of playing for your country."
