Hal Robson-Kanu has admitted that he will be open to returning to playing for Wales just a year after retiring from international football.
Speaking to The Express and Star, the 30-year-old striker confessed that he will be willing to come into the squad and do a job for the national side if needed next summer in the 2020 EUROs, a competition in which Robson-Kanu etched his name into Welsh football history by scoring one of the goals of the tournament against Belgium and sending Chris Coleman’s side to the semi-finals.
Could Robson-Kanu start for Wales for EURO 2020?
Robson-Kanu said about a return to international football: “I’ve been speaking to them (Wales) for a while now about making myself available if at any time they felt I could contribute. It’s nothing to do with qualifying or not. It’s about whether they feel I can help the team.”
The West Brom striker later added: “I’ve missed international football and you do get that feeling that you can still help the team. It’s something I am thinking hard about, we’ll see.”
Despite a slow start to the season with the Baggies, Robson-Kanu has finally begun to find his form for Slaven Bilic’s side in recent weeks and has been a key reason as to why West Brom find themselves top of the Championship heading into the festive period.
As stats from Transfermarkt show, the former Reading striker has bagged four goals in his last six games for West Brom including vital goals against the likes of Middlesbrough, Charlton and Sheffield Wednesday this weekend.
With Robson-Kanu on a purple patch of sorts for the Albion, the 30-year-old striker could seemingly force himself into the Wales national team again come summertime next year, where Ryan Giggs’ side will be aiming to recreate the magic they displayed the last time The Dragons played in a major international competition.
