West Brom 'keeper Boaz Myhill 'gutted' over Wales axe

Albion keeper Boaz Myhill today hinted his international future is uncertain after admitting he was "distraught" to be dropped for Wolves' Wayne Hennessey.

The Baggies man said he was "gutted" to be axed for Wales' back-to-back World Cup qualifiers against Macedonia and Belgium this month.

Hennessey, who is currently on loan at Yeovil, was handed an instant recall by Chris Coleman after recovering from a two cruciate knee ligament operations despite Myhill performing well for the Baggies in the absence of injured No.1 Ben Foster.

"I was gutted," said Myhill. "I'm not going to lie, I was distraught.

"I found it hard for a couple of days after the first game but it's one of those things.

"Managers choose who they want to choose, but from a personal point of view I don't see how I can do any more at club level.

"I thought I was going to play but I didn't.

"It has got me thinking whether there is anything I can ever do to get in that team but that's a discussion for another day.

"Things are going well at club level so I have to try to keep it up."

Asked whether he was thinking of quitting the international scene, Myhill said: "I don't know what I'm thinking at the moment."
