EMYR HUWS CALLED UP BY WALES

1 October 2015

Loanee in Chris Coleman’s latest selection

- Emyr Huws receives call-up from Wales
- Midfielder could feature against Bosnia and Andorra
- 21 year-old has four caps for his country

Huddersfield Town midfielder Emyr Huws is in the Wales squad for its upcoming UEFA European Championship qualifiers against Bosnia Herzegovina and Andorra.

The Llanelli-born 21 year-old, who is on loan to the Terriers from Wigan Athletic, has been named in the squad by Wales Head Coach Chris Coleman for the pair of important qualifiers.

The Welsh play in Bosnia Herzegovina on 10 October before hosting Andorra at the Cardiff City Stadium on 13 October in the final two games of the qualifying campaign. 

Ahead of the games, the Welsh sit top of Group B, with top two teams in six team group advancing to the final tournament.

A point in either match would be enough to seal Wales’ place at the Euro 2016 tournament in France, which would be the country’s first appearance at a major tournament since the 1958 World Cup. 

Emyr already has four caps for his country, two of which have come in the current Euro qualifying campaign. However, his last international appearance came back in November 2014 ahead of his long injury layoff.

The call-up caps what has been an excellent start to life at Town for the central midfielder. Emyr has scored four goals in just three starts and one substitute appearance for the Terriers so far, which has earned him the Club’s BWF Player of the Month award for September 2015 as well as a nomination for the PFA’s monthly Championship accolade.

Emyr is the latest Town player to get called up for international duty, adding to Jason Davidson (Australia); Joe Wright & Jake Charles (Wales U21s); Danny Kane (Republic of Ireland U19s) and Jordan Williams (England U17s).

Watch Emyr & Town in action against MK Dons on 20 October - it's just £10 adults at the gate!
