Aston Villa Duo Get Wales Call (7/11/17)

Aston Villa Duo Get Wales Call (7/11/17)

Aston Villa duo James Chester and Neil Taylor have been called up by Wales manager Chris Coleman for the coming international break.

The next break of the 2017/18 campaign in November sees Wales face friendly ties against France and Panama. Wales travel to the Stade de France on November 10 before hosting Panama on November 14.

Having named his provisional squad there have since been changes. Gareth Bale has withdrawn from the squad following injury, and with Hal Robson-Kanu and Emry Huws already ruled out, Jonny Williams is also the latest casualty.

Replacing them in the squad are Barnsley's Ryan Hedges, Tom Bradshaw and Lloyd Isgrove, whilst Wigan Athletic's Lee Evans is also added to the group.

Prior to the provisional squad being announced, James Collins announced his retirement from international football.

From the first time I pulled on the Wales shirt as a 14 year old boy till today it has been one of my proudest moments in football, Played with great players and for fantastic managers and they gave me a chance to challenge myself against the worlds best... but the time has come to step aside to let the younger lads take our great country forward and to great things... it`s been a difficult decision to come to, to leave behind such a amazing set of lads and a top manager in Chris Coleman and all his staff, but feel the time is right!! I`d like to thank the gaffa, his staff and the lads for giving me the best time of my life at the Euros last year, it`s a time myself and my family will never forget Thank You!! I`d also like to thank the truly amazing welsh fans who supported myself and the team through thick and thin over the years we couldn`t have achieved what we have without your support Thank You!! I`d like to thank everyone at @fawales for your help over the years Thank You!! I`ll always be there to support our great country ?????? Diolch yn fawr iawn ?????? Together Stronger Ginge xx
