Woodburn's Wales call up

30th August 2021

Ben Woodburn has been called up to the Wales squad.

The on-loan Liverpool forward, who made his Hearts debut in Saturday’s 2-0 cinch Premiership win at Dundee United, has been added to caretaker manager Rob Page’s squad for their upcoming international matches.

The call up marks a return to the national team set up for the first time in nearly a year.

Wales travel to Helsinki for a friendly against Finland on Wednesday before facing Belarus in a World Cup qualifier on Sunday.

They round off the international period by hosting Estonia in Cardiff next Wednesday in another World Cup qualifier.
