Wales’ team for Qatar World Cup has been named

ROB PAGE has announced the Wales team that will take part in the country’s first World Cup since 1958.

There are places for Joe Allen despite his injury while Brennan Johnson, Neco Williams, Gareth Bale, Sorba Thomas and Aaron Ramsey are among the other names to be included.

Jonny Williams is also included after impressing for Swindon Town.

Wayne Hennessey is selected on the night he gets a rare start for Nottingham Forest so he will be hoping to impress.

Fellow Forest team mates Neco Williams and Brennan Johnson are also in despite some inconsistent performances.

Gareth Bale scored as he helped LA Galaxy to Cup glory at the weekend while Kieffer Moore has also found some good form of late.

The announcement of the squad was made from Tylorstown, Rob Page’s home town.

Tylorstown is in the heart of the Rhondda Valleys, an area with a significant link to the 1958 World Cup through Jimmy Murphy. Born in Treharne Street, Pentre, Murphy guided Cymru to the quarter-finals of the 1958 World Cup.

Wales first World Cup game is on Monday, November 21, against the USA, kick off at 7pm.

They then face Iran four days later before another four day rest before the big game against England on the 29th.

Whatever happens between now and the end of the tournament, one thing for sure is that this group of players will write a whole new chapter in Wales’ history.
