Ryan Giggs has included Gareth Bale in Wales’ squad for their opening Euro 2020 qualifier despite him currently being sidelined through injury.

Bale, the Real Madrid forward, turned his ankle in the closing moments of the club’s Champions League defeat to Ajax and sat out their 4-1 LaLiga defeat of Valladolid on Sunday.

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