Wales squad named for opening Euros qualifiers: Rob Page calls up uncapped quartet

Wales boss Rob Page has named his first squad of the post-Gareth Bale era for the country's opening two Euros qualifiers against Croatia and Latvia.

With Wales' all-time record appearance maker and goalscorer Gareth Bale hanging up his boots at the start of this year, the Welsh national team will embark on a new era in the upcoming qualification campaign for next summer's Euros finals in Germany without the Real Madrid icon's services.

Undoubtedly the finest footballer Wales have ever produced, Bale helped inspire his nation to three out of the last four major tournaments, with the onus now falling on a new generation of Welsh stars to maintain this period of success on the field.

Bale is one of a series of Welsh stalwarts to have called an end to their international careers following last year's disappointing World Cup Finals, with Chris Gunter, Joe Allen and Jonny Williams all also now out of contention.

This has opened the door for fresh blood to be afforded the chance to represent their country by Wales manager Rob Page, including uncapped quartet Nathan Broadhead (Ipswich Town), Ollie Cooper (Swansea City), Luke Harris (Fulham) and Jordan James (Birmingham City).

Page has also confirmed another icon of Welsh football - Nice midfielder Aaron Ramsey - will succeed Bale as the national team captain.

Wales squad in full:

Goalkeepers:

  • Danny Ward (Leicester City)
  • Adam Davies (Sheffield United)
  • Tom King (Northampton Town)

  • Connor Roberts (Burnley)

  • Morgan Fox (Stoke City)

  • Joe Morrell (Portsmouth)
  • Sorba Thomas (Blackburn Rovers)
  • Wes Burns (Ipswich Town)
