Kieron Freeman: International call-up

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.

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
