Freeman could win his 10th cap at that level in Llanelli on Friday, March 22.

The 20-year-old full-back, signed from East Midlands rivals Nottingham Forest last summer, has made 12 first-team appearances for Derby this season.

He has been on the sidelines in recent weeks with an ankle injury but was

back in Nigel Clough's squad as an unused substitute in the Rams' 3-1 defeat to Birmingham last Saturday.

Meanwhile, Freeman's team-mate Mark O'Brien has been placed on stand-by for the Republic of Ireland Under-21 Squad for their forthcoming international against Portugal in Dublin on Monday, March 25.

Like Freeman, O'Brien returned from a month out with a knee injury as an unused sub at St Andrew's.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
