Celtic's Stokes eyeing ROI return after Trapattoni exit
The 25-year old striker has been in the international football wilderness since May 2011 with the Italian always overlooking him for Ireland call-ups after he withdrew from a squad due to exhaustion.
But now that the Football Association of Ireland and Trapattoni agreed to end his contract, Stokes is looking for a reprieve.
"I hope so. I have said since I have been left out the squads that I would love to be back in," he said.
"It's not down to me. I would love to be involved in the set-up but I am just concentrating on my club football and hopefully when a new manager comes in and I am still performing well, maybe I will get my opportunity."
He added: "Hopefully, whoever comes in can turn that around, it might be a good thing."
