THE PERFORMANCES of one Wrexham AFC star lately have led to many a Wales fan asking - 'should he be called up to the national team?'.

Paul Mullin has once again been firing on all cylinders for the Reds this season.

The star striker has already bagged 27 goals in just 31 appearances in all competitions so far (correct at time of writing) and is also the FA Cup's leading goalscorer with seven goals.

That kind of scintillating form has led many Welsh football fans to call for the 28-year-old to be given a shot at playing for the national team.

Although born in Liverpool, the striker has previously taken to Twitter to tell fans that his 'nan was born in Wales' and that he is 'already registered' to play for the country should Wales manager Rob Page ever come calling.

And it seems that Wales fans are not opposed to the idea of that happening.

Leader reporter Arron Evans put out a Twitter poll on Wednesday, February 1.

It asked: "It's a question on a lot of people's minds at the moment. He's scored just shy of 30 goals already this season - so, would you like to see Wrexham AFC star Paul Mullin play for Wales in future?"

Fifty people responded to the poll which was active for 10 hours.

A total of 64% of those who responded said they would like to see Mullin pull on the red shirt of Wales in the near future.

Wales next face Croatia away on March 25 and Latvia at home on March 28 as part of their UEFA EURO Qualifying campaign.

Reds boss Phil Parkinson has said it 'wouldn't surprise' him if Mullin was handed an international call-up soon.

He said: “It’s very rare for any player outside of a League set-up to get an international call-up, however he played very well against Sheffield United and it wouldn’t surprise me if his name is being mentioned.”

It's fair to say that Mullin has built up quite the relationship with Wrexham fans since his move from Cambridge United to the Racecourse in 2021. Could a new bond with Wales fans be next?

Stranger things have happened of course - never forget that Vinnie Jones played for Wales once upon a time!
