Caley Thistle goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams hopes to win his first cap for Wales in tomorrow night’s friendly against the Netherlands in Cardiff.
Fon Williams has been a regular in the Wales squad since first being called up for a 1-0 friendly defeat to Poland in Portugal in February 2009.
Wales have sealed their qualification for next summer’s European Championship finals in France, their first appearance in the latter stages of the tournament.
Although he has yet to appear for his country, Fon Williams still feels he is part of something special and said: “It’s great, because I go away and I’m constantly learning about different things.
“Different players might come in, but the nucleus of the team has remained the same. I don’t think the squad has changed an awful lot since I’ve been there.
“All the players have adapted to each other, they bounce off each other and there’s a great togetherness. We get rewards for that.
“We approach our football with a belief that every team has its day.
“This time around it’s a little bit different. That’s not the case because the team has grown so much.
“What they’ve done with Welsh football is incredible. Throughout the FAW, they’ve put a great amount of work into it and it’s come on leaps and bounds.
“What has been achieved and created in the past couple of years is remarkable.
“There’s no question we are where we are as a nation because the FAW put certain things in place for players and coaches to develop and for us to be able to compete with the leading nations.”
Fon Williams has been an ever-present in the Inverness side since joining John Hughes’ side in the summer following his departure from Tranmere Rovers.
The 28-year-old believes the transition is seamless when he goes away with Wales and added: “The manager and the staff have been a vital part of Wales’ success. They work constantly on tactics and how to approach different games.
“They spend a lot of time on it with us, so must spend an awful lot of time on it among themselves.
“It’s a bit like what’s going on here at Inverness. I don’t think there’s a minute goes by here where the staff don’t talk about football.”
