David Joseph Cornell (born 28 March 1991) is a Welsh professional football goalkeeper, currently playing for Football League Championship side Swansea City. He is a Wales under-19 international.


Club career

Cornell toured Spain with the Swansea senior squad in pre-season only to suffer a serious wrist injury which halted his progress. Then-manager Roberto Martinez decided to call Cornell up to the first team, after loan signing Dimitrios Konstantopoulos was unable to extend his stay at the club, and was placed on the bench for the fifth round FA Cup match against Fulham.[2] Cornell made his professional debut for Swansea on 25 August 2009 when he was in the starting line-up for the League Cup match against Scunthorpe United.[3]

International career

Cornell made his debut for the Wales under-17 side on 25 March 2007, in a 3-0 defeat to Belarus,[4] and went on to win five caps at under-17 level, his last coming on 6 October 2007 in a 2-2 draw with Spain in the qualifying round of the 2008 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship.[5] In August 2009, he received his first call-up to the Wales under-21 side to face Italy,[6] but remained on the bench.

In November 2009, he made his debut for the Wales under-19 side, playing in consecutive defeats to Portugal and Spain in the qualifying round of the 2010 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship.[7][8] The day after, Cornell was handed a shock call-up to the Welsh senior squad, for their game against Scotland due to the playing commitments of Owain Fon Williams, and Lewis Price, and an injury to Boaz Myhill.[9]
