From an interview with Daily Mail -
- Born in Kirkcaldy due to his Scottish father, Burke grew up in Melton Mowbray when his parents split and before making his senior debut against Denmark in March, FA officials tried to suggest he avoid committing his international future there and then.
'They did try a little cheeky one but it was never going to happen,' Burke reveals. 'It was nothing direct but I did hear when I was away with the senior squad for the first time they didn't want me to play for Scotland.
'I was like, 'No way! I've played for Scotland at youth level, I can't change.' Who does that? I love playing for Scotland, it is my country. It is where I was born. Every time I wear the badge I get goosebumps.'
