Sheffield United starlet David Brooks has been called up to the Wales national squad for a second time.
The 20 year-old attacking midfielder has broken through at Bramall Lane this season, forcing himself into the first team squad with a string of impressive performances, scoring his first competitive goal for the club against Leeds in a huge game which briefly saw the Blades sit top of the league.
Brooks was called up by Wales manager Chris Coleman last month for two crucial World Cup Qualifiers. He didn’t feature in either game, and Wales were unsuccessful in their attempts to qualify for a first World Cup since 1958.
Now he has been called up again for two friendly games in which he’s likely to gain a first cap for his country. The first is an enticing fixture against France in Stade de France, Paris. The second is a home game in Cardiff against Panama.
Brooks will join up with the likes of Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and Joe Allen for the matches, which take place on 10 November and 14 November respectively.
