A number of Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to respond to Tyler Roberts' brief message after it was announced that he had been included in Wales' squad for the upcoming international break.

Roberts has kept his place in Ryan Giggs' squad for the games against Spain and Republic of Ireland. The forward has enjoyed a superb month, and it started with his senior debut for his country at the start of September.

 

Two bright displays for Wales ensured that Roberts returned to Elland Road with plenty of confidence. Before his call-up, the 19-year-old was still awaiting his Championship debut with the Whites having spent most of his spell up until that point on the sidelines injured.

But injuries to Kemar Roofe and Patrick Bamford before the season resumed prompted Marcelo Bielsa to hand Roberts his chance for the clash with Millwall. And although he did not score that day, he has certainly made the most of his chance in the side since.

Roberts has scored three goals in his last four appearances, including a brace against Preston North End and the stunning winner over Hull City on Tuesday that sent Leeds back to the top of the table.

While his previous call-up may have been inspired by Giggs deciding to take a closer look at the youngster, this latest one has undoubtedly been earned by his club form. And that is why a number of Leeds supporters were keen to praise and congratulate Roberts when he tweeted following the news.
