Yeovil Town's on-loan midfielder Shaun MacDonald has received a call-up to the Wales National Squad. The Swansea City player is one of four players drafted into the senior squad that has travelled to Vaduz to play Liechtenstein on Wednesday. Andy King (Leicester City) and Jermaine Easter (MK Dons) and Mark Bradley (Walsall) are the other players called up.
Part of the need for new reinforcements is due to suspension with Craig Bellamy (Manchester City) and Wayne Hennessey (Wolverhampton Wanderers). Both players have returned home to their parent clubs.
Shaun's call-up does not theoretically cause a problem with any further Yeovil Town matches, although does mean that he will be joining Ryan Mason and Steven Caulker as players who are unlikely to team up with the Glovers squad that will face Carlisle United until their Friday morning training session.
Congratulations to Shaun, and with Wales having already failed to qualify for the FIFA 2010 World Cup, there is the opportunity for manager John Toshack to experiment with his line-up, should he wish to. Shaun is fresh from captaining the Under-21s on Saturday in a 2-0 win over Bosnia-Herzegovina U21 in Wrexham and so is having a busy weekend, with him having to board a plane on Sunday to join the senior squad.
