Having seen the controversy over his horror tackle on Craig Fagan die down following his served three match ban, Danny Guthrie has set his sights on breaking into Stuart Pearce`s under 21 squad as he aims to further his international career. Guthrie said:
'Like any young player, I want to get into the squad, and if I can maintain my performance levels for Newcastle, then I might get a chance. It is an aim, but I am not too worried about it at the moment. If Stuart Pearce picks me, he picks me, but if not, I will just concentrate on playing for Newcastle. Newcastle's the most important thing for me. I want to play for the team here more than anything, and if I get picked for the Under-21s, that will be an added bonus.'
