Gareth Bale named in Wales squad for opening Euro 2020 qualifier

Ryan Giggs has included Gareth Bale in a 31-man squad for Wales’ opening Euro 2020 qualifier despite missing Real Madrid’s last game.

The Real Madrid winger turned his ankle in the closing moments of Real’s Champions League defeat by Ajax and sat out the 4-1 LaLiga win at Real Valladolid on Sunday.

Rotherham midfielder Will Vaulks is called up for the first time as James Chester and Andy King miss out through injury.

Aston Villa defender Chester has not played since the end of January because of a knee problem, while Leicester midfielder King will not play again this season after damaging an ankle during a loan spell at Derby.

Ryan Giggs’ squad meet Trinidad and Tobago in a Wrexham friendly on March 20 before starting their Euro 2020 campaign against Slovakia in Cardiff four days later.
