Newcastle’s Spanish winger Ayoze Perez has been called up by Spain’s U-21 squad for the very first time.
Ayoze Perez – in action for Newcastle in pre-season
Ayoze has looked good in pre-season for the Magpies and the 21 year-old has made an excellent start to his Newcastle career, and the winger/striker is looking for a starting position at Newcastle in his first season at the club.
Ayoze is in the Spanish U21 squad for European U-21 Championships qualifying matches which are away to Hungary on Thursday, 4th September and then at home to Austria the following Tuesday, 9th September.
With Newcastle being a (very) high-profile club, any player who plays well at the club usually gets an International call up – and that happened to Jack Colback this week, when he was selected for Roy Hodgson’s full England squad for the very first time.
Rob Elliot is now an Ireland International goalkeeper and Paul Dummett has already represented Wales at left back, and the local lad got a call-up from them for the two week International break to start next week.
We look forward to Paul creating a good attacking partnership down the left wing with a certain called Gareth Bale, and we just hope Gareth can lift his game a bit when playing with the talented Dummett. 😀
So there are some (big) advantages of signing on for Newcastle United – but don’t tell that to Loic Remy – who seems to have turned Newcastle down for about the 9th time today – and that’s only since last January. 🙁
Maybe he doesn’t want to come here after all.
