Lloyd James gets Welsh call-up

Lloyd James gets Welsh call-up

Lloyd James has been rewarded for his recent form with a call-up to the Welsh U21 side for their upcoming friendly fixture against Northern Ireland.

The 20-year-old makeshift defender has been in fine form recently, having set-up goals for Marek Saganowski against Norwich, and Andrew Surman against Sheffield United respectively.

It won't be the first time that James has donned the Welsh shirt, having previously represented his country at U17, U19 and U21 level.

Should James make an appearance against Northern Ireland on Tuesday night, it would be his 10th cap at Under 21 level, a big achievement considering he has only broken into the Southampton first-team this season.

As the young Dragons failed to qualify for this summer's UEFA European Under 21 Championship finals in Sweden, a win against Northern Ireland would be a welcome boost, especially with qualification for the 2011 tournament set to begin in March.

A solid performance from James on Tuesday would certainly go some way to making sure he is involved in future squads.

Whilst Lloyd James can be a bit suspect defensively, you can't fault him going forward. Considering he's naturally a midfielder, I think he's done a decent job this season and fully deserves his call-up.

Yeah considering he isn't an actual right back, James has done well for us this season. I'm not sure how many assists he has got, but i'm sure it's a lot. His delivery from the right wing has benefited us this season. I just hope in training and with experience he can work on his defenisve side...
