HEREFORD-based teenager Jordan James earned his first international starts for Wales – guiding them to a win in Latvia.

The 19-year-old who plays domestically for Birmingham City started in a goalless friendly draw against Korea Republic on Thursday before helping his country to a 2-0 win in Latvia on Monday.

“You can’t describe the feeling,” said James after helping his country to victory.

“For me it’s been an unbelievable camp, it’s been such a proud camp. I don’t want to stop here. I want to get to better things and I wouldn’t have been able to do that without the lads in the dressing room. They’ve taken me under their wing and tonight I’ve repaid them hopefully.

“We showed our togetherness and we got through tonight. It was a tough test and this isn’t a nice place to be (Latvia).

“We got through it and looked comfortable in the game. You can see the different things that we’re trying and it worked out tonight.

“Seeing my parents and grandparents crying at the end of the game, it’s a really good feeling.”

Wales manager Robert Page was full of praise for teenage star James and says the Birmingham City midfielder ‘has got everything’.

He added: “He reads the game well, he’s athletic, he can pass the ball, he can head it, he ticks a lot of boxes.

“For me he’s got everything and he’s a great lad. He wants to work hard, I think he enjoys it. He’s got potential and we’re going to help him achieve that.”
