Bale included in Wales squad for World Cup qualifiers

The Real Madrid target, who is yet to see any action this season for Tottenham, has been named by Chris Coleman in the national squad for games against Macedonia and Serbia
Gareth Bale has been included in the Wales squad for upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Macedonia and Serbia, despite Tottenham's insistence that the winger is currently injured.

Bale is yet to play for Spurs this season as he waits to complete a world record £86 million move to Real Madrid.

The winger has not turned up to training this week as it is believed he wants a move to the Bernabeu to happen as quickly as possible.

The Welsh squad is a strong one that includes 11 players who play in the Premier League.

The full list is as follows:

Goalkeepers: Wayne Hennessey, Glyn Myhill, Owain Fon Williams.

Defenders: Ben Davies, Neal Eardley, Danny Gabbidon, Chris Gunter, Adam Matthews, Sam Ricketts, Neil Taylor, Ashley Williams.

Midfielders: Joe Allen, Jack Collison, Andrew Crofts, Andy King, Joe Ledley, Aaron Ramsey, Jonathan Williams, Gareth Bale.

Attackers: Craig Bellamy, Simon Church, Hal Robson-Kanu, Sam Vokes.
