Woodburn adds experience to U21 squad

Cymru under 21 manager Paul Bodin has named a 20-man squad to face Moldova in his side’s first away match of the UEFA U21 Euro 2021 qualifying round.

#U21EURO Qualifying Round

Moldova v Cymru

  • Friday 11 October 15:00
  • District Sports Complex, Orhei

Cymru will face Moldova on Friday 11 October and Bodin has been able to call in Ben Woodburn and Dylan Levitt who have been a regular part of Ryan Giggs’ senior squad during the last twelve months. It will be the first time the two players have been involved in the U21 setup.

Bodin’s side recorded a famous 1-0 win against Belgium in the opening match of the campaign in September but it was followed by a 5-1 defeat to this year’s U21 Euro finalists Germany. Sixteen players from September’s squad have been recalled, including captain Regan Poole and midfielder Brennan Johnson who scored the winning goal against Belgium on his debut.

Nathan Broadhead returns to the squad after missing last month’s matches due to injury and Jack Vale will be part of his first U21 squad after the midfielder represented Cymru in the #U19EURO elite round back in March.
