Sorba Thomas from Huddersfield Town talks about family pride and opens up the experience in Wales

Huddersfield Town winger Sorba Thomas has spoken of his excitement for representing Wales in front of a home crowd for the first time.

Thomas made his Wales debut on the bench in last month’s international break in a 2-2 draw in the Czech Republic before making the next game in Estonia.

But after receiving his second calling in a row, Thomas will get his first taste of the Cardiff believers on Saturday when Rob Page’s team host Belarus.

Speaking to North Wales Live, he said: “When I first went I was a bit surprised at times, there was a lot of excitement on my part.

“But this time I’m even more happy because I can play in front of the home fans, in front of tens of thousands. It will be great to show what I can do in front of them. “

Thomas has had a great start to his first full season in the Football League with Huddersfield, scoring one goal and providing eight assists in 17 games.

The 22-year-old joined the club in January from non-league team Boreham Wood and began to assert himself in the senior team at the end of last season after playing several games with the club’s B-team.

While an international gig seemed like a world away around this time last year, Thomas revealed that his mother never allowed him to forget his routes in hopes that one day his opportunity would arise.

He said: “My mother never lets me forget that I am Welsh. She will be at the two games (Belarus and Belgium) and has her Wales top ready.

“My whole family is proud of me, especially my mom. I love the fact that she likes to flaunt me! “
