Scottish-born centre-forward Jason Cummings scored on his debut for League One side Shrewsbury Town last night. But the striker could potentially have his eye on the Socceroos.
Jason Cummings was a 68th minute substitute for Shrewsbury Town who trailed 1-0 to AFC Wimbledon last night. Five minutes later he had scored what proved to be the equaliser in his first appearance.
The striker joined Shrewsbury Town permanently after an unsuccessful spell at Nottingham Forest over the last two years, having joined for just over one million euros in 2017.
The striker seems to be settling in quickly at New Meadow.

Earlier this year Socceroos coach Graham Arnold uncovered Cummings' Australian heritage, having turned to family bloodlines to plug the holes in Australia's depth dilemma.
Despite making two international appearances for Scotland's national team, neither were in competitive matches meaning he is still eligible to play for the Socceroos.

Cummings has an Australian mother and Arnold's track record of recruiting Scots has proved fruitful, convincing Martin Boyle and Harry Souttar to secure their allegiances with Australia.
