Wales have announced their 26-man squad for the Euro 2020 with a few surprises thrown in that will no doubt stir up debate among the fans.

The biggest surprise is the inclusion of 19 year old uncapped Cardiff City player Rubin Colwill.

2016 goal-scoring hero and West Brom striker Hal Robson-Kanu has however been left out of the squad entirely, as has Cardiff City midfielder Will Vaulks.

Many of the biggest names of the 2016 tournament, including Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, are on the team sheet once more.

Wales will face Switzerland on 12 June, Turnkey on 16 June and then Italy in their final group match on 20 June. They will be managed by  Robert Page, as Ryan Giggs awaits trial in January accused of headbutting his ex-girlfriend and controlling her.

Wales next face World champions France in a warm-up match in Nice on Wednesday.

Goalkeepers: Wayne Hennessey, Danny Ward, Adam Davies.

Defenders: Chris Gunter, Ben Davies, Connor Roberts, Ethan Ampadu, Chris Mepham, Joe Rodon, James Lawrence, Neco Williams, Rhys Norrington-Davies, Ben Cabango.

Midfielders: Aaron Ramsey, Joe Allen, Jonny Williams, Harry Wilson, Daniel James, David Brooks, Joe Morrell, Matt Smith, Dylan Levitt, Rubin Colwill.

Forwards: Gareth Bale, Kieffer Moore, Tyler Roberts.
