Celtic boss Neil Lennon believes Anthony Stokes deserves a call-up to the Republic of Ireland squad.
Stokes has found himself frozen out of Giovanni Trapattoni's plans after pulling out of last summer's Carling Nations Cup.
The striker has again been overlooked for next week's friendly with Czech Republic despite scoring 18 goals in all competitions this term.
However, Lennon has urged Trapattoni to recall Stokes to his plans ahead of this summer's Euro 2012 finals.
"He hasn't played in any of the qualifying games and there was that time when he pulled out for feeling tired at the end of last season," Lennon said.
"Trapattoni is probably looking at the players that got him there [to Euro 2012] but I think the way Anthony is playing he cannot be ignored."
Lennon revealed he is prepared to call Trapattoni to put forward Stokes' case for a recall.
"I see young James McClean was picked from Sunderland and, if Anthony keeps going in the same vein as he is, I will be putting a call into the FAI and saying: 'Look, I think this kid is worth a look'. I would be prepared to make that call.
"He has played consistently well for a big club, under pressure, every week and he's played well in European games.
"It might just be the fact that he didn't go to that tournament at the end of last season and Trapattoni has been loyal to his players, which I can understand as well.
"He [Stokes] realises he made an error of judgment last May. Regardless of whether Ireland had qualified for the Euros or not, he wants to play for his country.
"I don't know if it's a personal thing. Anthony is in form and has scored 18 goals this season.
"I'm not going to tell Mr Trapattoni how to do his job. All I'm doing is saying, look, I recommend this player to you and I think he's worth a look at again."
