Wayne Hennessey hopes to seize his chance if he starts for Wales against Denmark on Wednesday.
The highly-rated 21-year-old has started six of Wales' last seven internationals but has lost his place in the Wolves team this season.
Carl Ikeme has been preferred by Mick McCarthy in recent weeks and Hennessey realises he will have to work hard to dislodge his rival.
Hull's Boaz Myhill could get the nod to face Denmark but Hennessey is desperate to feature and turn in an eye-catching performance.
He said: "I'm approaching the game just like I normally would, the only thing that's different is obviously I'm not playing (for Wolves) at the moment.
"It's going to be tough but I'm looking forward to a good few days' training and then see if (Wales manager) John Toshack picks me or if he puts me on the bench.
"I'm working hard in training. I've got my head down and I'm away with Wales now so I'll try and get half a game or a full game and go back to Wolves and continue to work hard."
Toshack has selected the youngest Wales squad in history for the friendly against a Denmark team in fine form.
Denmark are currently top of World Cup qualifying Group 1, which also includes Portugal and Sweden, and Hennessey is expecting a tricky match.
"It will definitely be a tough game, but an interesting one," he said.
"It's a friendly but every game you play in you want to win.
"We're doing very well at the moment. We've got a good lot of youngsters coming through, Aaron Ramsey's coming through and he's in this squad now so it will be interesting to see."
