Caley Thistle goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams will discover this week if he is in Wales manager Chris Coleman’s squad for next month’s Euro 2016 finals in France.
Wales have qualified for their first major tournament finals since the 1958 World Cup in Sweden and have been drawn in Group B alongside England, Russia and Slovakia.
Fon Williams has been a regular in the Wales squad since 2009, and made his debut for his country last November, coming on as a substitute in a 3-2 defeat against the Netherlands in Cardiff.
Coleman will today select a provisional squad before a final cut at the end of the week, and Fon Williams is anxious to be part of it.
He said: “These are exciting times. It’s going to be a fantastic time to be involved in the squad if I’m in there.
“If I’m in the squad, it’s going to be unbelievable, there’s no two ways about that. It’s a dream to be representing my country in a major tournament. Wales have not done it since 1958, so we have waited a heck of a long time to be in such a tournament.
“It’s a bit surreal. I don’t really know what to expect. I’m speaking as a supporter here. Growing up, I used to go to the national games and watch my country, but to be a part of it, and part of something we haven’t done in a long time, is going to be fantastic.”
Fon Williams is in talks about a new contract with Caley Jags, having impressed since joining on a free transfer from Tranmere Rovers last summer.
The 29-year-old is keen to get the deal wrapped up quickly, and added: “We’re working on it, so hopefully we can get it done soon as soon as possible.
“I’ve always said it’s brilliant up here, absolutely fantastic. I was saying to myself how lucky I’ve been to have been able to work in such a fantastic place.
“Not only a place, the people as well, they have been fantastic. They could not have been any more friendly.”
