Wil­liams hop­ing for rare op­por­tu­nity

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

FOOT­BALL: Ash­ley Wil­liams in­tends to end a dif­fi­cult sea­son at Ever­ton on a high with Wales in Cal­i­for­nia.

Wil­liams has not played for Ever­ton since be­ing sent off in a Pre­mier League de­feat at Burn­ley on March 3.

His last taste of se­nior action came when Wales played at the China Cup in late March - and the 33-year-old cen­tral de­fender will need all his ex­pe­ri­ence to get through Tues­day’s friendly with World Cup-bound Mex­ico.

“It’s al­ways dif­fi­cult not be­ing in­volved and you want to play be­cause playing a game is that bit harder,” Wales skip­per Wil­liams said. “I’ve just tried to stay in shape and I’ll just try and use my ex­pe­ri­ence as best I can against Mex­ico.”
