After spending last season on loan at Hibernian, where he scored 23 league goals, the Scotsman scored Wolves' first and last goals in the 4-0 win over Gillingham last Saturday.

Griffiths, who won the Scottish Football Writers' Association Player of the Year last season, was reported to be a summer target for Celtic, but the forward wanted to take his chance at Wolves.

Now Griffiths wants Scotland manager Gordon Strachan to give him the same chance Jackett did in July.

He told the Daily Record: "The new manager, Kenny Jackett, called me and said he wanted me in his team and that was all I needed to hear.

"All I wanted at Wolves was a chance to show what I could do.

"A game against England at Wembley is the kind of occasion where a Scotland player could make a name for himself that would last for years.

"Team selection is out of my hands but it's my ambition to be a regular starter for Scotland."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
