Rubin Colwill: Wales include uncapped Cardiff City midfielder in Euro 2020 squad | Football News


Cardiff City uncapped midfielder Rubin Colwill has been named to Wales’ squad for Euro 2020.

Colwill, who turned 19 in April, was part of the Cardiff academy squad at the start of the season but will finish them as a member of the national team in a major international tournament after making only six senior appearances.

Robert Page will take charge of Wales in the absence of Ryan Giggs as they try to break out of Group A in this summer’s tournament and reach the round of 16 again after reaching the last four in 2016 under Chris Coleman.

Gareth Bale, who has scored six times in seven appearances when meeting Tottenham at the end of his loan spell at club Real Madrid, will captain the squad.

There are eight survivors of the group who reached the Euro 2016 semi-finals in France – Bale, Ramsey, Ben Davies, Chris Gunter, Danny Ward, Joe Allen, Jonny Williams and Wayne Hennessey.

As expected, Hal Robson-Kanu – released by West Brom last week – missed out after being kicked out of recent training camp.

Derby forward Tom Lawrence and Schalke winger Rabbi Matondo were also left out, with Swansea’s Ben Cabango selected ahead of Luton center-back Tom Lockyer.
