Leicester and Wales midfielder Andy King is relishing the dual challenge of trying to impress his new bosses at club and country over the coming days.
King is looking forward to doing his best for his country after Brian Flynn, who has replaced John Toshack as caretaker manager, named the striker in his squad for the Euro 2012 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Switzerland.
The talent starlet is then aiming to make another impact when he returns to the Walkers Stadium from international duty to work with new Leicester boss Sven-Goran Eriksson - who has taken over at the Championship strugglers following Paolo Sousa's exit.
King is relishing the opportunity of working with Flynn and knows the importance of getting a result after Wales lost their opening Group G game in Montenegro last month.
He said: "It always feels like a fresh start when a new manager comes in. Brian has probably worked with 80 per cent of the players before, so he is probably more aware than most people about the squad we have got.
"Everyone is really looking forward to the two games but we have really got to win one.
"If we don't get anything out of these next two then we are probably out of the campaign again."
King is yet to meet former England boss Eriksson but is looking forward to linking up with the Swede and hopefully helping propel the club back towards the play-off position they held last year.
"I'm really looking forward to working with him," King said. "You look down his CV and see that he has worked with some great players and great teams.
"He is going to be good for us and hopefully he can stamp his authority on our team. Hopefully he will have some new ideas and help us climb the league."
