'Get him on the plane': Fans want Anthony Stokes at Euro 2016 after he terrorises Rangers in cup final
Published 21/05/2016 | 17:30
Anthony Stokes was in sizzling form at Hampden Park this afternoon as he netted twice in Hibernian's 3-2 win in the Scottish Cup final against Rangers.
Stokes curled home the opening goal after just three minutes before later heading an equaliser to the net with ten minutes to go, which was followed by David Gray's injury time winner.
It was the first cup win for Hibs since 1902 but from an Irish perspective, the main story was the form shown by striker who is on loan from Celtic.
Stokes is unlikely to make Martin O'Neill's Euro 2016 squad after being omitted from the extended list but that didn't stop fans from clamouring for his inclusion after his red hot performance this afternoon.

Stokes makes it 1-0 should be in Ireland squad for euro's and should be a starter for Celtic IMO— Colm Brady (@colmb8) May 21, 2016
Might be a bit of a dope but Stokes should definitely be considered for Ireland. Especially when Doyle, Murphy and McGoldrick make the squad— Keith (@_Strawbs_) May 21, 2016

Call Anthony Stokes up for Ireland, tell him that every opposition team is actually Rangers in disguise, profit.— Back Page Football (@bpfootball) May 21, 2016
