Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward has revealed his delight of being called-up to the Wales Senior squad by posting on his Twitter account this afternoon.
The 21 year-old goalie signed for the Reds in 2012 after moving from Conference side Wrexham in 2012. He then went on to make his U-18 debut in February of that year.
Ward then made his senior debut for Liverpool last season in a friendly against Tamworth and he was awarded the Man of the Match award for a top display.
National manager Chris Coleman is aware of his talents and with Ward playing for his country at U-17, U-19 and U-20 level, it was only a matter of time before he got his opportunity alongside players like Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey.
The goalkeeper also travelled with Rodgers’ side to America last season on their pre-season tour and having failed to gain a spot this season, will only improve with the boss always known for bringing players through.
Ward found out the news today and with Wales taking on Bulgaria in their quest for a Euro 2016 spot, the Welshman failed to hide his delight. He said on his Twitter: “delighted to have been called up for Wales seniors.”

Wales are currently top of their group and they will be hoping to keep that spot with a win over their next opponent.
