Rangers winger Rabbi Matondo is set to end a 13 month international exile and return for the Wales national team in the upcoming international break.

The 22-year-old attacker has been on resurgent form at Ibrox and is set to get his reward by joining up with Rob Page’s squad for the upcoming European Championship qualifiers.

First up for Wales is a friendly with South Korea in Cardiff before the nation heads out to Latvia as they bid to reach Euro 2024.

Wales have so far had a disappointing start to qualification and will be hoping Rabbi Matondo can help inspire the nation to an international turnaround.

Losing to Armenia (H) and Turkey (A) during the last round of fixtures, Wales won their home clash with Latvia and also managed an impressive away draw with Croatia.

Discipline has been a major issue for the country in the qualifying campaign with Wales reduced to ten men in their last two matches.

Kieffer Moore was sent off in the defeat to Armenia whilst Joe Morrell was red-carded when the country fell to defeat in Istanbul.

Rangers winger Rabbi Matondo set for Wales return

Rangers fans will be hoping Rabbi Matondo can continue his impressive form with the Wales national team as he looks to add to his 11 caps with the country.

The Gers support have begun to see what the 22-year-old can offer with a series of impressive performances at the beginning of this season.

Once tipped for the very top of the game, Schalke 04 paid Man City a reported £11m to sign the winger a teenager but since then Matondo’s career has stuttered.

Following a loan stint with Cercle Brugge, Rabbi Matondo moved to Rangers last summer but a lack of form kept him out of both the Ibrox side and the Wales set-up.

Last earning a cap in a UEFA Nations League clash with the Netherlands in August 2022, the winger has been on a 13-month international exile which is set to come to an end this week.
