The Football Association of Wales are confident of the commitment of Chelsea youngster Ethan Ampadu.

Ampadu qualifies for England as well as Ireland.

The Irish Independent says Ampadu made an encouraging Wales debut on Friday night when he came on as a second-half substitute against France in Paris.

He was born and brought up in Devon and is the son of Dubliner Kwame Ampadu, who played for the Republic of Ireland’s U-21s. However, his mother is Welsh and he has been part of their developmental teams since the age of 12.

The 17-year-old is expected to make his full debut against Panama tomorrow in Cardiff and is able to switch allegiance until he plays his first competitive international.
