Man City midfielder Matthew Smith: Right decision to choose Wales over England

Manchester City midfielder Matthew Smith says choosing Wales over England was one the best career decisions he's made.

Smith is currently impressing on-loan at FC Twente this season.

And he told Voetbalzone: "I learn a lot from (Wales coach) Ryan Giggs, he was a great player and is also a great trainer."

Who is also enjoying mixing with Arsenal ace Aaron Ramsey and Real Madrid star Gareth Bale.

"Those are really top players. They all help me if I have something or have questions about something.

"When I was fourteen years old, I was invited by the federation for the first time. I really enjoyed the solidarity at the training camps in Wales. Now I play six years later with the first team and I think I made a fantastic choice. I think it's great to play for Wales."
