Swansea City are looking like being able to put together a solid run at promotion following their excellent start to the season.
New manager Steve Cooper has replaced Graham Potter and has, so far, got his team playing some excellent football as they sit atop the Championship table.
One of the key men for Swansea this term has been defender Joe Rodon, who made a big impression last season and has kept his place under Cooper this season too.
His form has not gone unnoticed either at international level, and this weekend saw Rodon rewarded with his first start for Ryan Giggs’ Wales side as they saw off Azerbaijan 2-1.
Rodon was delighted to get the nod and took to Twitter to share just how proud he was following his first start for his country, and it’s safe to say there was plenty of positive feeling directed his way from the Swansea fans.
🏴 A very proud moment! ❤️ pic.twitter.com/CcrlT63spV

With Rodon being so impressive for Swansea and being a fan favourite as it is, his tweet was always going to be met with a positive response.
