Hennessey Gets Wales Call

4 October 2018

Eagles keeper Wayne Hennessey has been included in Wales' squad for their upcoming matches against Spain and the Republic of Ireland.

The shot-stopper will have the opportunity to play in front of a large home crowd at the Principality Stadium for the first time since 2011 on Thursday 11th October when they host Spain in a friendly.

That is preparation for their next UEFA Nations League match against the Republic of Ireland in Dublin five days later as Ryan Giggs' side look to get their campaign back on track against the team they thrashed 4-1 before losing to Denmark 2-0.

Should he feature in both games, Hennessey will break Palace's all-time international cap record in that game. He has won 37 during his time in SE25, one behind Mile Jedinak's haul of 38 for Australia.

Full Wales squad:

Goalkeepers: Wayne Hennessey (Crystal Palace), Danny Ward (Leicester City), Adam Davies (Barnsley)

Defenders: Ashley Williams (Stoke City), James Hester (Aston Villa), Ben Davies (Tottenham Hotspur), Chris Gunter (Reading), Connor Roberts (Swansea City), Christopher Mepham (Brentford), Jazz Richards (Cardiff City), Ethan Ampadu (Chelsea), Paul Dummett (Newcastle United), Declan John (Swansea City)

Midfielders: Joe Allen (Stoke City), Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal), Andy King (Leicester City), David Brooks (Bournemouth), Matthew Smith (FC Twente)

Attackers: Gareth Bale (Real Madrid), Ben Woodburn (Sheffield United), Harry Wilson (Derby County), Tom Lawrence (Derby County), Sam Vokes (Burnley), George Thomas (Scunthorpe United), Tyler Roberts (Leeds United)
