WALES should build their Euro 2016 forward line around Burnley striker Sam Vokes, believes Sam Ricketts.

The Wolves skipper, who like Vokes is in the Welsh squad for the friendly with Iceland in Cardiff next Wednesday, says that the 18-goal striker deserves his chance to start up front.

"Hopefully he can be that goal scorer that we've been searching for," said Ricketts.

"He's got a very good goal scoring record for Wales for the games he's played.

"This season he's high up on the goal scoring charts in the Championship and I think now's the time to blood him."
