International PARAuthor: Brian Donovan Date: Wednesday, 30th Aug 2000
The possibility of Andrius Skerla playing for Lithuania has raised questions over who was the last Par to pull on an international jersey.
The 23 year old centre back already had 22 international appearances to his credit when he joined Dunfermline from PSV at the beginning of the 2000/01 season.
The last Dunfermline Athletic player to be capped for his country was Colin Miller. He got his last Canadian cap as a Pars player against Costa Rica on 16th November 1997. The Canadians lost that game 3-1.
This game was also his final Canadian cap. In total he gained 61 caps for Canada.
A full list of the appearances he made whilst a Pars player are:
10/01/96 Honduras Gold Cup
12/01/96 Brazil Gold Cup
30/08/96 Panama World Cup Qualifier
10/10/96 Cuba World Cup Qualifier
13/10/96 Cuba World Cup Qualifier
27/10/96 Panama World Cup Qualifier
03/11/96 El Salvador World Cup Qualifier
15/11/96 El Salvador World Cup Qualifier (Substitute)
02/03/97 Mexico World Cup Qualifier
16/03/97 USA World Cup Qualifier
06/04/97 El Salvador World Cup Qualifier
01/06/97 Costa Rica World Cup Qualifier
07/09/97 Jamaica World Cup Qualifier
12/10/97 Mexico World Cup Qualifier
09/11/97 USA World Cup Qualifier
16/11/97 Costa Rica World Cup Qualifier
Colin Miller left the Pars in the middle of March 1998.
The CSA total of 16 caps is at odds with the total of 15 quoted in the Club programme when he left. I can only assume that they didn't include his substitute appearance against El Salvador.
