Delighted And Honoured - Burns

Bristol City forward Wes Burns has spoken of his delight at being called up by Wales for their pre-Euro 2016 training camp.

The 21-year-old has been selected by manager Chris Coleman in his 29-man squad for the Portugal-based camp, which starts on May 23rd. 

Just over a week later Coleman has the task of slimming down the squad to 23 for the summer tournament in France, where Wales will face Slovakia, England and Russia. 

Burns told bcfc.co.uk: “I’m absolutely delighted and honoured to be named in the squad for the training camp and I can’t wait for it to come around. 

“I’ve really enjoyed the end of the season, getting regular matches for Fleetwood Town and helping them stay in League One. 

“I’m realistic about my chances for the Euros. Wales have got some great players and they’ve done fantastically for the country to book our first-ever place at the Euros. 

“I just have to knuckle down and work hard to show the manager what I can do. Hopefully that can be enough to book a place on the plane.” 

Burns made 14 appearances for Fleetwood on loan, scoring five times, but missed their final two games of the campaign through a hamstring injury. 

However, the youngster will be fit and ready to go by the time of the training camp in the Algarve.
