Vokes hoping for Wales chance

Vokes hoping for Wales chance

Burnley striker Sam Vokes is hoping his form at domestic level will provide him with the chance to secure a starting role with Wales.

The 26-year-old has been trusted to play as a lone striker by Sean Dyche in a 4-2-3-1 system in the absence of the suspended Andre Gray.

Vokes has taken his opportunity with the Clarets and is now hopeful that will open up the chance to lead the line for the national side.

Hal Robson-Kanu has been the long-standing challenger to Vokes with Wales, but he did get the nod in the 4-0 win over Moldova as he netted his eighth international goal.

Vokes said: “It gives me confidence to take in to that when I meet up with the lads. We’ve got two games to get ready for.

“Hopefully I’ve done that. It’s for me to do. If I’m doing well here hopefully I’ll get the nod for Wales.”
