Connor Roberts Named in Wales Squad for 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers Against Czech Republic & Estonia

Connor Roberts has been recalled for Wales’ 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers against Czech Republic and Estonia in October 2021.

Roberts is one of three fresh additions after recovering from a groin injury which has sidelined him in recent months, following Wales’ disappointing Euro 2020 exit to Denmark in June.

In midfield, QPR’s George Thomas has been dropped with Cardiff’s Mark Harris handed a recall after missing last month’s international action, as Aaron Ramsay and Harry Wilson feature amongst those to retain their spots.

Up front, Gareth Bale misses out with a hamstring injury and has been replaced by Huddersfield’s Sorba Thomas, as Kieffer Moore, Tyler Roberts and Daniel James retain their places in the squad.

Manager, Rob Page has made no changes in his goalkeeper selection as Wayne Hennessey, Danny Ward and Adam Davies retain their places in the squad.

Rob Page’s Welsh Dragons face Czech Republic on Friday 8 October (7:45pm BST) in Plzen with the winner becoming favourites to seal the Group E runner-up spot and qualification for 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifying Play-Offs.

Wales will then visit Estonia on Monday 11 October (7:45pm BST) in Tallinn, which could be crucial for their top two bid depending on what happens in Plzen.

Here is Wales’ 28-man squad for next month’s away qualifiers against Czech Republic and Estonia.
