Bodin has called on the experience of nine players involved in the previous U21 qualifying campaign, including Mark Harris, Cameron Coxe and Regan Poole, the most established squad member as he enters his third campaign with the squad.
Despite being new faces to the squad, Bodin will be familiar with Adam Przybek, Jack Vale and Brennan Johnson after managing them in the UEFA U19 Euro Elite Round last March in the Netherlands. Other players from that U19 campaign including George Ratcliffe and Ben Cabango will already be familiar with the U21 environment after facing Albania with the side in June.
Ben Williams, Dylan Levitt and Terry Taylor will be taking part in their first U21 camp. Williams and Levitt were selected by Ryan Giggs for the senior squad to face Croatia and Hungary in June while eighteen-year-old Terry Taylor, the youngest player selected by Bodin, was part of a senior squad training camp in May.
Cymru U21s will face Belgium U21s on Friday 6 September (17:00) and Germany U21s on Tuesday 10 September (19:00). Both games will be played at the Racecourse. Wrexham and tickets are available online for Belgium & Germany.
