Bournemouth defender Mepham wants more tournament action with Wales

Bournemouth defender Chris Mepham has spoken about the job of featuring at a World Cup for Wales.

Playing at both Euro 2020 and the 2022 World Cup, Mepham wants more time on the biggest international stages.

As his nation plays Euro 2024 qualifiers, Mepham spoke about his World Cup experience.

Mepham told the Daily Echo: “Certainly. I had that similar sort of feeling when I came away from the Euros.

“I really enjoyed it and was pleased, but certainly coming away from it I felt like in myself I wanted more of those opportunities.

“I wanted to go and play for Wales in a World Cup, I wanted to then see if we could then qualify for the next tournament.

“I think you get that hunger inside of you that wants to attack the next thing.

“We've got a great opportunity now where we can qualify for another Euros and that will be three major tournaments in a row that a small nation like Wales is qualifying for.

“Hopefully we can do that and I get exposed to many more opportunities on the bigger stage."
