A look at Huddersfield Town players called up for International Duty
– Eleven players from across the city called up
– Sorba Thomas accepts Wales call-up
– Scott High gets Scotland U21 call-up
Here’s a look at the eleven Huddersfield Town players who have been selected by their nations for the matches taking place in June.
Sorba Thomas – Wales
Town’s assist machine received another international call-up with the Welsh side.
Rob Page’s side will play five games during this break, the most important being the play-off final against Ukraine or Scotland. The winner will earn a place at the World Cup in Qatar this winter. Thomas will look to continue his fine form after his substitute performance in the Play-Offs semi-finals to earn a place in the Welsh starting line-up.
Daniel Sinani – Luxembourg
The Town leader has once again been called up by his nation to play in their upcoming Nations League fixtures. Sinani will be looking to add to his 6 international goals with matches against Lithuania, the Faroe Islands and Turkey coming up in June.
Brodie Spencer – Northern Ireland
Town’s Academy Player of the Year has received his first international call-up for the Northern Ireland senior team! Spencer, 18, will join Ian Baraclough’s squad for their four Nations League group games with every chance of making his international debut for the Green and White Army.
Rolando Aarons – Jamaica
Aarons was called up by the Jamaican FA for their CONCACAF Nations League matches, playing two games against Suriname and one against Mexico. Rolando is yet to be capped by Jamaica, so this call-up could see the Town winger make his international debut!
Giosue Bellagambi – Uganda
Town’s B team goalkeeper Bellagambi has been called up for the first time by the Ugandan senior side for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. The 20-year-old has been on loan at Brighouse this season, gaining valuable first-team experience, as well as on the City‘s first-team bench.
Nicholas Bilokapic and Jacob Chapman – Australia U23
Our two young Australian goalkeepers have been selected in the Socceroos U23 team to participate in the U23 Asian Cup which will take place in Uzbekistan in June. Bilokapic and Chapman have both been loaned out this season, each making their first-team debuts. Bilokapic, 19, went to Hartlepool in League Two in January and Chapman to Gateshead for the first half of the campaign. The two keepers will battle it out for the top spot when Australia take on Kuwait U23s in their tournament opener.
Levi Colwill – England U21
After his impressive season at the heart of Town’s defence, Colwill earned himself a call-up to the England U21 side. The Young Lions have four UEFA U21 qualifiers to come, the last of which will be at John Smith’s Stadium against Slovenia’s U21s at a ground where Colwill has become a fan favorite over the past year.
Scott High – Scotland U21
Scott High has once again been called up to represent Scotland’s U21s in the UEFA U21 Championship qualifiers. Our academy graduate has made 23 appearances for Town in the league this season and has been a valuable member of the squad. High has appeared in 5 of the last 6 qualifiers so far and will be looking to add two more international caps to his name.
Pat Jones – Wales U21
Town’s young wide player has earned a call-up to the Wales U21 side for their upcoming UEFA U21 Qualifiers. The Young Dragons will play twice at home to the Netherlands and Gibraltar, with Jones looking to earn valuable minutes for Paul Bodin’s side.
Connor Falls – Northern Ireland U19
Falls has been called up by the Northern Ireland U19 team to take part in their European Championship U19 qualifiers. Northern Ireland currently sit third in their group, so striker Falls will be looking to help his side qualify.
