Swansea midfielder Allen impressing Wales boss Speed
Wales boss Gary Speed says Joe Allen's impressive performance in the 2-0 win over Switzerland shows the 21 year old has international potential. Speed said: "Joe was excellent, and that was only his first start. He has been playing great for Swansea and he showed that he can play at the top level.
"I had no hesitation in picking him, and there was no sentiment involved, it wasn't a Swansea thing because we were playing at their ground. He is an excellent player on the ball."
