Isaias’ name has been linked to a possible call up to the Socceroos.

“Personally I don’t know about it,” Simon told FIVEaa.

“Let’s be honest, he’s Spanish. He was born in Spain, he was raised in Spain, he played in Spain he came to Australia when he was 28, 29.

“I know he’s an Australian citizen… I don’t know whether you should be playing for a country that you’ve only lived in for a few years. It doesn’t sit very easily with me

“Personally I wouldn’t be comfortable with it.”
