Man Utd hero Bruce admits international regrets

Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce admits his one playing regret is failing to land an England cap.

Bruce was overlooked by Graham Taylor during his best years as a Manchester United hero and almost turned to the Republic of Ireland to achieve his dream of playing international football.

He told ChronicleLive: "I nearly played for Ireland because the England thing evaded me.

"My mum was Irish. It never quite happened, however, it was always something I'd loved to have done.

"Who wouldn't want to play for their country?

"It never quite materialised.

"What can you do?"
