Burns And Matthews Called Up By Wales

Wes Burns and Adam Matthews have been named in Wales' pre-Euro 2016 training camp.

City Academy product Burns earns his second call-up to the national side following a successful loan spell with Fleetwood Town.

The 21-year-old produced several dazzling displays for the Cod Army and scored five goals in 14 appearances in their successful bid to avoid relegation from Sky Bet League One.

Matthews was recalled to Chris Coleman’s squad in March after impressing for City on loan from Sunderland.

The right-back – set to overcome a hamstring problem – made his Wales debut in 2011 and has 13 caps to his name.

Wales boss Chris Coleman will run his eyes over 29 players in the Portugal-based training camp from May 23rd. Then on May 31st he will slim down that squad to 23 players to represent the Red Dragons in the summer tournament.

Wales face Sweden in a pre-tournament friendly on June 5th and then travel to their base camp in Brittany. In Euro 2016 they have been joined in Group B by Slovakia (June 11th), England (June 16th) and Russia (June 20th).
