Coleman considers Shawcross call

Next Story

Chris Coleman would consult captain Aaron Ramsey before approaching Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross to play for Wales.

Arsenal midfielder Ramsey broke his leg in six places in 2010 after a tackle by Shawcross, and ignored the centre-half's initial attempts to apologise. Shawcross qualifies for Wales because he spent five years of compulsory education in the principality.

Quoted in The Sun, Coleman said: "Ryan is a good player who could strengthen us. I will have a conversation with Aaron because he's somebody I respect a great deal, he's our captain and an important player. I won't shy away from it because there are issues."
