Town 'keeper could face Republic of Ireland

- Danny Ward receives call-up to Wales squad
- Goalkeeper could face Republic of Ireland in latest World Cup qualifier
- Liverpool loanee already has three senior caps

Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Danny Ward has been called-up to the latest Wales squad for an upcoming World Cup qualifier.

Chris Coleman’s squad will host the Republic of Ireland in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

Ward and his teammates will play the game on Friday 24 March 2017; 7.45pm kick-off. 

Wales currently sits third in World Cup qualifying Group D with six points from its opening four games. The Welshmen’s next opponent sits top of the group with 10 points; four ahead of Wales.

The first placed side will advance to the final tournament in Russia once all 10 group games have been played, with the eight best runners-up from the groups advancing to the second round of qualifying.

With the Sky Bet Championship taking an international break at this time, Danny will have time to re-join the Terriers ahead of the Club’s match against Burton Albion on Saturday 1 April.

The ‘keeper is the third member of David Wagner’s First Team squad to be called on international duty this month; he follows Aaron Mooy for Australia and Elias Kachunga for DR Congo.
