Sam Vokes: ‘Principality Stadium where Wales want to be’

Sam Vokes celebrates his 89th-minute goal against Spain

Wales striker Sam Vokes says Cardiff’s Principality Stadium is “where we want to be” and hopes to play all home games there in the future.

Thursday’s international friendly against Spain saw Ryan Giggs’ side return to the national stadium after a seven-year absence.

“It is a great ground, it is where we want to be,” said Vokes, who scored in Wales’ 4-1 defeat.

Wales’ home games are usually played at Cardiff City Stadium.

More than 50,000 fans turned out to watch Wales at the Principality – 17,000 more than would fit inside Cardiff City Stadium.

“If you get the ground full there is nothing like it,” said Burnley striker Vokes.

“That’s where we want to be, that’s the end goal. But we know we’ve put on some good performances in Cardiff (City Stadium) as well.

“A full Principality is a great event for us.”

Vokes added it was important for Wales to perform well “so the fans come back”.
