Read about the Barnsley players that have been selected to represent their countries!
With the international period of matches now upon us, Barnsley Football Club are delighted to be represented over the break from league games.
Georgia vs Wales - 6.10.17
Wales vs Republic of Ireland - 09.10.17
Tom Bradshaw will be once again representing Wales after being called up for the upcoming World Cup Qualifiers with Georgia and the Republic of Ireland. This is a crucial period for the Welsh who need positive results from their next two qualifiers if they want to qualify for the World Cup in 2018, which is to be held in Russia. Bradshaw has been in superb form for the Reds this season and already has seven goals to his name.
The latest addition to the Wales squad is in-form winger Ryan Hedges! The pace, trickery and goal scoring threat posed by Hedges down both flanks so far this season has seen the 22-year-old make the step up from the younger age groups to the full senior Wales squad. That form has seen Hedges net three times for the Reds this campaign, with two of those goals being stunning winners to beat Morecambe and Nottingham Forest at Oakwell.
ENGLAND U20 FIXTURES
Italy U20 v England U20 - 05.10.17
England U20 v Czech Republic U20 - 10.10.17
On-loan pairing Harvey Barnes and Ike Ugbo have both been selected to head off with the England U20s! Both players have impressed for their country through the age groups and are now progressing up the ladder following Keith Downing’s decision to include them in his squad as they battle with some of the world’s elite youngsters.
SCOTLAND U21 FIXTURES
England U21 v Scotland U21 - 06.10.17
Scotland U21 v Latvia U21 - 10.10.17
Stevie Mallan has once again been selected to represent Scotland at U21 level after being chosen for the upcoming qualifying matches against England and Latvia. Mallan is another fine youngster at the Club who is receiving international recognition and scored his first goal for his country against Holland last month in a 2-0 victory.
We would like to wish the best of luck to all our squad on international duty and will keep fans updated across all channels with their progress!
