Freddy Eastwood is determined not to let being away with Wales affect his position in the Wolves team.
The former Southend striker enjoyed a bright start to life at Molineux following his £1million move from Roots Hall, but his breakthrough internationally has not been without controversy.
Upon being dropped by Wolves chief Mick McCarthy, Wales boss John Toshack expressed his surprise that a big money signing would find himself benched.
Toshack's words did not sit well with former Republic of Ireland chief McCarthy and Eastwood admits he is eager to avoid a repeat scenario.
"I feel I have done well for Wales and that means John Toshack is happy with me. And if I do well for my country then Mick McCarthy will take notice too," said Eastwood.
"We had a little chat about what John said last time, about me not playing for Wolves, and I explained to Mick that it did not come out quite the way it was intended, and there really hasn't been an issue over it.
"When I go back this time I know I have to perform the way the Wolves manager wants me to, and then I will be in the side.
"But if Tosh is making remarks like that, that's OK by me because it means he is pleased with me."
