Bristol City home Brandon Cooper

Wales call-up for Brandon Cooper

25th March
First team

Swansea City defender Brandon Cooper has been called into the Wales senior squad for the first time ahead of their fixtures against Mexico and the Czech Republic.

The centre-half - who is back with the Swans after an excellent loan spell with Newport County - had originally been selected in the Wales Under-21 squad for their meeting with the Republic of Ireland.

But with Ben Davies and Tom Lockyer being forced to withdraw through injury, Cooper has been added to Rob Page's squad and took part in training on Thursday.
