Manchester United winger Daniel James is feeling great, after showcasing his talents for Wales over the international break.

The former Swansea man City scored a sensational goal on Wednesday night as the Dragons beat Finland 3-1 to win their UEFA Nations League group.

He also provided an assist at Cardiff City Stadium and was delighted with contribution when speaking to the press afterwards.

"I feel really good at the moment,” James explained to reporters. “When I do play, I give my all. I bought into everything we wanted to do and thankfully I got that goal and assist."

Expanding on his stunning goal - a first for club or country this season - Daniel said: "I wouldn't say it's a release. Man United is my club and I love it there. Whether I am playing or not, I'm proud, as proud as I am to play for Wales.”


Now, the Welshman wants to make the most out of his fine form from international duty in order to get more minutes for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Reds.

"There are obviously times where I played a lot last season,” James said.

"I may not have played as much this season, but I am sticking in there and always in and around it.”

In his debut campaign at United, James featured 46 times in all competitions and 33 of those were in the Premier League - including a memorable debut against Chelsea.

 So far this season, the 23-year-old speedster has made four appearances and all as part of our starting XIs, against Crystal Palace, Chelsea, Newcastle (all Premier League) and Brighton & Hove Albion (Carabao Cup).

James hopes to be involved on Saturday when United host West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford. Team news for that game will be announced at 19:00 GMT.
