WALES manager Ryan Giggs has announced his squad for the upcoming friendly and UEFA Nations League clash against both Spain and the Republic of Ireland.
Wales will return to the Principality Stadium for the first time in seven years as they host Spain on October 11 before heading to the Arriva Stadium in Dublin five days later.
Giggs has named a 25-man squad and is able to call upon the experience of Aaron Ramsey, Chris Gunter and Gareth Bale.
21-year-old George Thomas, who won his first senior cap as a second-half substitute in the friendly against Mexico earlier this year, is named in the squad.
Cardiff City defender Jazz Richards is also included after missing out on the Nations League double-header last month.
However, Derby County midfielder Joe Ledley and Bristol Rovers defender Tom Lockyer will both miss the upcoming games due to injuries.
The Republic of Ireland slumped to a 4-1 defeat at the Cardiff City Stadium when the two sides last met earlier in the competition.
While Wales suffered a 2-0 defeat in their latest Nations League clash against Denmark in Aarhus last month.
The squad in full: Wayne Hennessey, Danny Ward, Adam Davies, Ashley Williams, James Chester, Ben Davies, Chris Gunter, Connor Roberts, Chris Mepham, Jazz Richards, Ethan Ampadu, Paul Dummett, Declan John, Joe Allen, Aaron Ramsey, Andy King, David Brooks, Matthew Smith, Gareth Bale, Ben Woodburn, Harry Wilson, Tom Lawrence, Sam Vokes, George Thomas, Tyler Roberts.
