Bristol Rovers defender Joe Jacobson will fulfil a childhood dream if he gets to play for Wales in friendly matches against Iceland and Holland next week.
The 21-year-old left-back received a letter from the Welsh FA confirming his first senior call-up for the national team, having made 13 appearances for the Under 21 side.
“It’s a brilliant moment for me,” said Jacobson. “Obviously, I have got into the team on merit for the season I’ve had with Rovers. It is a big chance for me to impress manager John Toshack.
