Sweden's Niclas Fasth and England's Anthony Wall are the final players to be added to Europe's team for the Royal Trophy in Bangkok in January.

Europe captain Seve Ballesteros has already selected Ryder Cup stars Darren Clarke, Paul McGinley, Henrik Stenson, Robert Karlsson and Lee Westwood.

Johan Edfors of Sweden makes up the eight-man team.

Asia skipper Joe Ozaki has picked India's Jeev Milkha Singh and Japan's Toru Taniguchi and Tetsuji Hiratsuka.

Asia's side also includes Thailand's Thaworn Wiratchant, Prom Meesawat and Thongchai Jaidee, and South Korea's Yang Yong-Eun and SK Ho.

The teams will contest 16 matches in a Ryder Cup-style event, with foursomes, fourballs and singles all to be played from 12-14 January at the Amata Spring Country Club in Bangkok.

"We will be representing all of Asia, which includes many nations and a massive population of over three billion people," said Ozaki.

"That adds up to a lot of support - and a lot of expectation."

Clarke said he was excited about the prospect of defending the title Europe won in last year's inaugural event.

"I think everyone could see how much I enjoyed being part of the team at the Ryder Cup," said Clarke.

"I am really looking forward to making my first appearance in the Royal Trophy."
