Aaron Ramsey has been named in Wales’ squad for this month’s World Cup qualifiers despite reports in Italy that he has suffered a thigh injury.

Ramsey, 30, was not included in Juventus’ squad for Sunday’s 3-1 Serie A win over Cagliari.

Stoke midfielder Joe Allen returns for the first time since 2019 having recovered from an Achilles injury.

Bournemouth forward David Brooks is not included having been ruled out for four weeks in February with an ankle injury.

Wales start their World Cup campaign away to Belgium on 24 March and then have a friendly against Mexico before their second qualifier at home against the Czech Republic on 30 March.

Assistant manager Robert Page will be in charge due to the absence of Ryan Giggs, who has had his bail extended after denying an allegation of assault.
