When Angharad James wants make a tactical point to teammate Natasha Harding, it's not a surprise she talks to her in Welsh.
In fact, like every international footballer, James is determined to maximize all advantages and is anxious for more players in the national team to communicate in the language.
James and Harding just happen to be clubmates at Reading FC, so the sounds of two women chatting in Welsh as they stand over a free-kick at the Madejski Stadium may confuse more than a few defenders in the opposition.
It's an edge James would like to see Wales utilize more regularly - in part to keep opponents guessing, but also as an expression of her identity and that of the team battling to qualify for the next European Championships.
"With me and Tash, we use Welsh both at club level and here playing for Wales," says James who was part of the Wales team that drew 1-1 in their most recent match at home to Northern Ireland.
