Wales will be without midfielders Carl Fletcher and Owain Tudur Jones for Sunday's friendly international against the Netherlands in Rotterdam.

Fletcher, of Crystal Palace, suffered ankle ligament damage in Wednesday's 1-0 win in Iceland and could be out of action for up to two months.

Swansea City's Jones injured an ankle in the same match and has flown home.

Wales will be bolstered by the return of Carl Robinson, who missed the match in Reykjavik on club duty with Toronto.


Further reinforcements will come in the shape of goalkeeper Boaz Myhill and defender Sam Ricketts, who were allowed to rest after their exploits in helping Hull City win the Championship play-off final.

Likewise, Doncaster's Brian Stock was in play-off action and could also join up with John Toshack's side, but the midfielder has a back strain that could rule him out at the Feyenoord Stadium.

Wales squad: Wayne Hennessey (Wolves), Boaz Myhill (Hull City), Lewis Price (Derby County), Darcy Blake (Cardiff City), Neal Eardley (Oldham Athletic), Steve Evans (Wrexham), Chris Gunter (Tottenham Hotspur), Joe Jacobson (Bristol Rovers), Craig Morgan (Peterborough United), Lewin Nyatanga (Derby County), Sam Ricketts (Hull City), Ashley Williams (Swansea City), Jack Collison (West Ham), Andrew Crofts (Gillingham), Arron Davies (Nottingham Forest), David Edwards (Wolves), Mark Jones (Wrexham), Jason Koumas (Wigan Athletic), Joe Ledley, Aaron Ramsey (both Cardiff City), Carl Robinson (Toronto), Craig Bellamy (West Ham), Craig Davies (Oldham Athletic), Freddy Eastwood (Wolves), Ched Evans (Manchester City), Daniel Nardiello (QPR), Sam Vokes (Wolves).
