Saturday's meeting with Arsenal at Molineux is the start of a dream quartet of fixtures for Wolves striker Kevin Doyle.
The 26-year-old will be charged with the task of breaking down the in-form Gunners in the Premier League at the weekend as Mick McCarthy's side aim to build on draws against Everton, Aston Villa and Stoke.
Doyle is then expected to play a crucial part in Republic of Ireland's vitally important two-legged World Cup play-off against France before returning to league action against Chelsea on 21st November.
The former Reading star is understandably looking forward to competing against the likes of William Gallas, Thierry Henry, Nicolas Anelka and Florent Malouda for club and country in an action-packed month.
He told skysports.com at an event to promote EA SPORTS FIFA 10: "Our run is Arsenal, then France twice, and then Chelsea.
"It is the reason you play football. Anyone who plays football and was offered that in their next four games would probably wet themselves with excitement.
"I take it for granted sometimes. In those four games you probably play against some of the best players in the world."
Arsene Wenger's Arsenal are first on the agenda and Doyle is confident that Wolves' recent unbeaten run and the trend for shock results this season leaves his side in a strong position.
He said with regards to the draws against Everton, Villa and Stoke: "They are good results. We have looked very good and everyone is pretty confident in ourselves and how we have done so far.
"Everyone is beating everyone this year, it is up and down, small teams are beating big teams. That is what makes it exciting. We feel we can do that on Saturday."
