Wales have handed a first call-up to Rotherham midfielder Will Vaulks for the friendly against Trinidad and Tobago and their first Euro 2020 qualifier against Slovakia.

Wales manager Ryan Giggs watched the 25-year-old play in Rotherham's 3-2 win over Blackburn earlier this month.

Vaulks was born on the Wirral and previously played for Tranmere, Workington and Falkirk.

He joined Rotherham in 2016 and qualifies for Wales through his mother.

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale is included in the squad having suffered an injury to his ankle in the closing stages of his club's Champions League defeat against Ajax.

Wales face Trinidad and Tobago in a friendly at Wrexham on 20 March, four days before hosting Slovakia in their opening Euro 2020 qualifier in Cardiff.

Aston Villa defender James Chester, on-loan Derby midfielder Andy King and unattached midfielder Joe Ledley all miss out through injury.

There could be a competitive debut for Schalke winger Rabbi Matondo, who won his first cap in November's friendly defeat against Albania.

Aston Villa left-back Neil Taylor could feature for the first time under Giggs having missed the last two matches through injury.
