Wayne Hennessey's nerveless performance in the Championship play-off semi-finals for Wolverhampton Wanderers looks like earning him his big international chance this weekend.
Wales manager John Toshack gave Under-21 international Hennessey his first full cap in Saturday's 2-2 friendly with New Zealand, as he allowed him to share goalkeeping duties with Burnley's Danny Coyne.
But Coyne, who conceded two goals at the Racecourse Ground before making way for Hennessey at half-time, has had a knee injury which kept him benched for the final two months of the season at Burnley.
The fact that Hennessey kept a clean sheet when he came on at the Racecourse, in the wake of his form on such a big stage in the two high-pressure games against West Bromwich Albion, has given Toshack a selection headache ahead of tomorrow's Euro 2008 qualifier against the Czech Republic at the Millennium Stadium.
Having missed out on a trip to Wembley, to play in Cardiff would be a major consolation.
"Coyne or Hennessey? It is a decision I'm going to have to sleep on," said Toshack. "Danny's knee injury looks to have improved a lot but he hadn't played since the game in Dublin in March and Lewis Price isn't playing at Ipswich.
"And Hennessey played those two games for Wolves in the play-offs, which is a big plus for us because they were big games in front of full houses with a lot of tension.
"If I decide to play Hennessey - and there is a good chance I might - that would be four goalkeepers we have used in six competitive matches. But that is not by design but because of circumstances."
Meanwhile, Wolves are determined not to get involved in a bidding war with Norwich City for one of the prime summer targets, Scunthorpe United striker Billy Sharp.
Norwich are understood to have made a #2 million offer for Sharp, who maintained his prolific scoring form with promoted Scunthorpe last season even after the mid-season departure of his strike partner Andy Keogh.
Wolves are understandably wary of rivals taking advantage as they bid to make their first major move in the market place in the wake of their forthcoming #30 million investment from proposed new owner Stephen Morgan.
