Having already been with his countrymen for a training camp in Portugal, Gunter and Wales are gearing up for a double-header of qualifiers as they look to book their place at Euro 2020.

The group stages are still in their infancy in the qualifying round, with a Daniel James winner seeing the Welsh win their opener against Slovakia.

But a daunting task awaits on Saturday 8th June (3pm), as Wales travel to face World Cup finalists, Croatia away from home, before heading to take on Hungary (Tuesady 11th June, 7.45pm), in a pair of key qualifying matches.

As he creeps closer to becoming Wales' first-ever male cap centurion, Gunter hopes to continue to play his part in international success for his country, telling the BBC: "I always said its alright getting high caps but you want to be in some sort of success and have some really good experiences.

"We have a good chance to get back to a major tournament and that is the only aim. There's no point looking at numbers or statistics.

"We want to be qualifying from this group because now we have been there and everyone knows what it's like, it makes you a little bit more hungry to experience it again.

"That is the only aim, to try and help in any way to get this country back to another major tournament."
