Wales announce squad for Ireland game

  • Gareth Bale was sent off for Real Madrid recently

The 17-year-old is an exciting prospect and earned many plaudits after replacing the disappointing Philippe Coutinho at Anfield last weekend as Liverpool ground out a win in the race for Champions League qualification.

Woodburn, who has played for Wales at youth level since the age of 13, has made seven appearances for Jurgen Klopp's side this season and broke Michael Owen's record by becoming Liverpool's youngest ever goal scorer last November.

Chris Coleman has explained his decision to leave Paul Dummett out of his Wales squad.

The English-born forward qualifies for Wales through his maternal grandfather and has represented the Welsh under-16, under-18, and under-19 level. He's been in our system for years.

"It makes me laugh when people say we've got to get him in".

On the possibility that Woodburn had been called up to squash any hope England may have had capping the player, Coleman dismissed the idea. "He has been part of the Welsh set-up since he was a young boy".

Coleman said: "There won't be any knee-jerk reactions to cap him".

Trump Tower wires not tapped confirms House Intelligence Committee
The White House has asked those committees to also investigate Trump's unverified wiretapping allegations against Obama. "But it's an illegal thing; they've been doing it, they've done it before and I think it's a disgrace".

"Of course I speak to the parents with players like Ben and tell them the pathway, what we expect and what we provide, but that's worldwide management and I'm no different in that respect".

None of our players belong to us.

" It's not about what game is good to get him in, it's the best squad".

"I haven't been getting as excited as everyone else about Ben because his progress has been no surprise to me because I've been looking at him for the past five years", added Coleman.

Woodburn will join up with a Wales squad that includes Gareth Bale, who has been back playing for Real Madrid after undergoing ankle surgery in December, and Aaron Ramsey, who completed 90 minutes for Arsenal against Lincoln in the FA Cup on Sunday for the first time since returning from a calf injury.

The only other uncapped player in Coleman's squad is Milton Keynes defender Joe Walsh.

Wales are third in Qualifying Group D, four points behind the Irish, who lead the group with three wins and a draw from their four games so far.
