Sheffield Wednesday have confirmed Liam Palmer has been called up to the Scottish national team.
This news comes despite the defender having missed both of the Owls’ last two fixtures, as per Transfermarkt, while he is also set to miss the Carabao Cup tie against Rotherham United, as reported by the club’s official Twitter page.
Lee Bullen has confirmed that Palmer is back in training and will be in contention to play against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.
Palmer currently has one Scottish national team cap to his name, having made his debut when he played the entire 90 minutes in the 3-0 loss against Kazakhstan in the Euro 2020 qualifiers, as per Transfermarkt – he has been on the bench for three other Scotland matches following his debut.
In terms of his club form, Palmer has been impressive during his three league matches this campaign and has recorded one assist so far, as per WhoScored.
He has averaged 2 tackles, 2 interceptions and 2 clearances per game, while also winning 1 aerial duel. In addition, he has averaged 1.3 key passes every game.
This has seen him make improvements on last season in interceptions and key passes, while he makes the same amount of tackles.
It is a good opportunity for Palmer to be in his national team set-up again, though there is the feeling this could be a bit of a risk considering how his back has been.
As long as he comes back to Hillsborough without anything be aggravated it is great news for him.
Wednesday fans, pleased for Palmer or would you rather not see him be risked? Comment below!
