Wolves striker Freddy Eastwood put aside his frustration at club level to display his goalscoring prowess in Wales' 2-0 friendly victory in Luxembourg last night.
Eastwood, frozen out a Molineux, has not started a Wolves game since Boxing Day, but relished the chance to play for Wales and bagged a goal in each half to complete a comfortable win.
Wales boss John Toshack said: "Some players don't take the opportunity when it comes along, but Freddy really grasped the chance to show what he can do.
"He is facing stiff competition at Wolves and probably hasn't completed 90 minutes in ages. But he's a good finisher and took his two goals very well. I am sure that will have done his confidence the world of good."
Eastwood has not started a game for Wolves since Christmas, and has only recently intimated that he may have to leave Molineux if he does not get more action. He has at least been seeing some action for Wales and, even though he looked short of match fitness, now has four goals in seven internationals.
Toshack added: "I was pleased with the result and pleased with Eastwood. When he had the chance to pull on the Wales jersey, he gave everything and scored two well-taken goals.
"It will have done him no harm to have played a full match. There is plenty of competition for places up front at Wolves, and this performance will do his confidence a world of good."
