Pride is at stake as Chris Gunter's Wales face England Under-21 pair Jamie O'Hara and Tom Huddlestone on the international stage tonight (Thursday, May 15).

Pride is at stake as Chris Gunter's Wales face England Under-21 pair Jamie O'Hara and Tom Huddlestone on the international stage tonight (Thursday, May 15).

Welsh defender Chris could come face-to-face with Jamie for an all-Spurs clash if the midfielder lines-up on the left and Chris takes his regular right-back role in the friendly at Wrexham. Tom, meanwhile, has been drafted in late and remains in Fabio Capello's full squad for friendlies against USA and Trinidad & Tobago.

There has already been some pre-match banter between Chris and Jamie. "It will interesting and I think it will be a good game because our squad is just about as strong as it can be, a few of us have dropped down from the seniors," said Chris as we caught up with the pair at Spurs Lodge last week.

"I could come up against Jamie, right-back against left midfield, so maybe when we're back next season I'll have something to brag about!"

"Chris has tried to give me a bit of banter but I've said to him I think we'll give them a right hiding!" laughed Jamie. "If I'm involved, it would be great to come up against him.

"These are always good games and it's always great to be involved. It's an important game for me to show that I'm capable of playing in the team and to stay involved in the big European qualifiers coming up."

Chris added: "In terms of Under-21s things are going well for Wales, we're top of our qualification group so hopefully I'll get one over Jamie."
