    Hi there

    Just a point of note but if Edwards was born in Telford Shropshire? then he is English. As far as I know there is no Telford in Wales.

    Thanks

    PS unless its Tommy Telford from Ruabon..

    Hi Dean

    He’s classed as Welsh and he plays for Wales as both his parents are Welsh. You don’t have to be born in the country to play for the country. You just need a parent or grandparent from the country.
