OWAIN Fon Williams is hoping his exceptional performance for Inverness Caledonian Thistle against Celtic on Sunday has increased his chances of featuring for Wales in the future.

Fon Williams produced five outstanding saves for the Highlanders in their Ladbrokes Premiership match against the Scottish champions at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

His second half blocks enable Richie Foran’s side, who netted an equaliser with a minute of regulation time remaining, to earn a point and move off bottom spot in the league table.

The 29-year-old was capped by his country in a friendly international against the Netherlands last year and was part of their 23 man Euro 2016 squad in France this summer.

He is unlikely to edge ahead of either Wayne Hennessey of Crystal Palace or Danny Ward, the Liverpool player who is on loan at Huddersfield Town, during his national team’s Russia 2018 qualifying campaign.

However, the Inverness game against Celtic was broadcast live across the United Kingdom on BT Sport and Fon Williams is optimistic that Chris Coleman, the Wales manager, saw him in action.

“Nothing gives me more pride than being involved with the Welsh national team,” he said. “What we created in France was unique, it was the best time of my life. It was unbelievable to be part of Euro 2016.

“If I can continue being with the boys then I’m more than happy because we’ve got a fantastic squad with unbelievable players. It’s a great time to be involved with the squad.

“I’m just trying to do my best for Inverness and I’m delighted we got something out of the game at the weekend. Who knows? Chris Coleman might have been watching. It’s nice it was on TV for people to see.”

Fon Williams revealed he had been a doubtful starter for the meeting with Celtic after he picked up an injury in the 1-1 draw with Aberdeen at Pittodrie the previous weekend.

“There was a doubt over whether I would play because of a groin problem,” he said. “I only trained the day before the game for the first time and didn’t kick a ball until the match itself.

“I felt my groin going against Aberdeen with my first kick of that game so it was touch and go. We worked hard during the week to get it right and thankfully I got through the game without any reactions which I was delighted about. It could have gone either way and I could have made the injury worse.”

The 2-2 draw with Celtic stretched Caledonian Thistle’s unbeaten run to three games after a win over St. Johnstone and a draw with Aberdeen and Fon Williams is hoping their can continue their resurgence against Dundee at home on Saturday.

“We’re unbeaten in three games and it shows the character we’ve got in the squad, the togetherness in the squad, never-say-die,” he said.

“Alex Fisher came off the bench and got us a point against Celtic. It’s great to have an un-beaten run and Dundee will be very touch so hopefully we can keep it going.”
