The next big challenge facing Swansea City's Ben Davies
BEN Davies could be in line to win a first international cap when Wales face Scotland on Friday.
The 19-year-old defender has shot to prominence since an injury to Neil Taylor handed him a chance in the Swansea City first team.
Davies has made six Premier League appearances so far this term and may get the nod from Chris Coleman when Wales look to kick-start their World Cup qualification bid in two days' time.
"Hopefully I'll get the chance on Friday, but for a young player like me it's a great opportunity just to be around the squad," said Davies.

"It's been a big step up from what I've previously been used to. I've been thrown in at the deep end and I've just got to do my best. It gives me a lot of confidence knowing the sort of quality I have around me."
Wales take on the Scots before travelling to Croatia on Tuesday knowing a win is vital to their hopes of reaching Brazil 2014.
They began the campaign with consecutive defeats by Belgium and Serbia.
"It's been a great experience so far," added Davies.
"We know the result is a big thing on Friday — if we get three points we might have a chance of turning the group around.
"It's a tough game for us and if we can get a good result we should be able to kick on from there."
