"I've been Wales captain from the Under-16s to the Under-21s so if the first team called I'd definitely go for that", he said.
The 46-year-old played for the Eagles from 1991 to 1995 but stressed his focus is only on getting Wales back in contention for the 2018 World Cup. "But I am pleased for Sam he has made that decision".
Wales manager Chris Coleman says he has no plans of taking over the vacant coaching role at Crystal Palace. Ideally you want your best players on the pitch but I've had a lot of time to plan. That's all I'm thinking about, that's all I care about.
Gareth Bale and Neil Taylor are omitted due to being suspended for the clash, but Coleman has no injury worries as he takes the players through their paces prior to naming the squad that will take on Serbia.

"I'm looking forward to this game, that's where my mind and my thinking is".
"Then these next two results are huge in terms of what will happen in this campaign".
"But I am not ready to tell the FAW [Football Association of Wales] or ring my players up and say 'Thanks for that'".
"We've had plenty of time to think knowing that he's not going to be there", said Coleman. "I am not ready to hand this over to someone else, not yet I am not".
