Robbie Savage's Man Utd starlet son Charlie, 17, called up to Wales U18s squad to face England

ROBBIE SAVAGE's son Charlie has been called up by Wales Under-18s to face England.

The 17-year-old is currently impressing in Manchester United’s academy.

And that form has been rewarded with a call from the Dragons.

The midfielder is joined by Burnley's Keelan Williams, the younger brother of rising Liverpool and Wales star Neco, in Rob Edwards' 20-man squad for the fixture on March 29.

Savage Jr, was on the bench for United's U23s against Brighton today.

He has already impressed for the Dragons at U17 level after Wales qualified for the elite round before it was postponed due to Covid-19. 

Edwards said: "We take great pride in seeing players take the step up to the senior team and we hope to see more of that across the age groups."

Wales Under-18s have not played for more than 20 years since Neville Southall was in charge of the side back in 2000.

But the age group has been relaunched with changes to Uefa's tournament structure.

Savage, 46, was part of United's Class of 92 alongside Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville before he was released.


He won 39 caps for Wales.

And he enjoyed a fine career in the Premier League with Leicester, Birmingham, Blackburn and Derby.

It was with the Foxes that Savage collected the only silverware of his career, lifting the League Cup in 2000.
