Huddersfield Town winger Jake Charles has been called-up by Wales Under-21 for their upcoming European Championship qualifiers.

The 20 year-old Academy graduate, could earn his seventh cap for the Under-21s as they face Denmark and Luxembourg in their Under-21 Euro 2017 qualifying matches.

In his last appearance for the Under-21s, Charles came on as a substitute and scored his first goal for Geraint Williams’ side against Romania. Unfortunately the youngsters went on to lose the game 2-1, their only defeat of the qualifying stages so far.

Williams’ Under-21s currently sit third in Group Five of the qualifying group; four points behind Denmark who they will face on Friday 2 September at Wrexham’s Racecourse Ground; kick-off 5pm.

Their second match against fifth placed Luxembourg will also kick-off at 5pm and take place on Tuesday 6 September at Bangor FC’s ground, Clandeboye Park.

The winner of group five will advance to the final tournament, which will be held in Poland in June 2017, whilst the group runner-up would reach the Play-Offs if it is in one of the top four from the nine groups.

Jake is the second member of Frankie Bunn’s Under-23s squad to receive an international call-up following Jordan Williams who will join England’s Under-18s.
