Birmingham City winger David Cotterill has been named in the Welsh team to play Belgium in their crucial European qualifier match for the finals tournament in 2016.

Cotterill will be apart of the squad that faces off against Belgium in the Group B fixture on Friday 12 June. Cotterill has made 22 appearances for his country and will be hoping to build on that as he comes into the form years of his career.

The Welsh-man has been impressive since joining Birmingham last Summer. Signed by Lee Clark, Cotterill has became a key part of Gary Rowett’s team, producing some wonderful displays and often making the difference in tight games. (away at Huddersfield for example)

At the age of 27 it is now time for the player to really make his mark for his club and country and what are typically a midfielders better years come into play.

David Cotterill started his career at Bristol City as a trainee before being bought by Wigan for £2 million at a young age. He failed to break into the team and soon found himself at Sheffield Wednesday for an undisclosed fee.

Despite getting back on track and securing a move to Swansea he again found himself out in the cold and loaned to Portsmouth. Shortly after that a short spell with Barnsley was all he needed to earn a spot at Doncaster – making 84 appearances and scoring 14 goals.

The Welshman now plays for Birmingham City and is the established right-sided midfielder for the club. He managed 42 league starts in his first season with the club.
