Wanderers fans can watch the action live as Josh Sheehan captains Wales against Gibraltar this evening.

It was announced on Wednesday that the Bolton midfielder will lead out his country for the first time at the Estadio Algarve (5pm).

Sheehan enjoyed a strong season in League One, providing 12 assists as the Whites reached the play-off final.

He even claimed both of the top prizes at the club’s End of Season awards night and was shortlisted for PFA Fans’ Player of the Year in the third tier.

The Welshman has come a long way since he was kept out of action for the best part of a year with a serious knee injury suffered in an FA Cup tie at Stockport, which had even cast some doubt over his Wanderers future at one stage.

Sheehan will now get a chance to wear the armband, with Rob Page set to name a young line-up while some of his more experienced names are unavailable.

The match is being streamed live on S4C (via BBC iPlayer or channel 134 for Sky viewers), with coverage starting from 4.30pm. It will also be shown on Premier Sports 1, with their coverage starting 10 minutes before kick-off.

Sheehan has represented his county on several occasions, most recently in the friendlies against South Korea and Gibraltar earlier this year, but it will be his first start on the international stage.

After it was confirmed he would captain the side, the midfielder told BBC Sport: “(Page) pulled me aside after breakfast and said you are playing tomorrow and he just dropped in there, ‘You are going to be leading the boys out’.

“I couldn’t really believe it to be honest - it’s not something I thought was going to happen. I was happy to be play the game and try to show what I am about, to lead the boys out is something you dream about.”

Wales also have a friendly on Sunday night against Slovakia, who are preparing for the Euros in Germany.
