Coleman announces squad for crucial Republic of Ireland Qualifier

Chris Coleman has named his 23-man squad for the FIFA World Cup qualifier against the Republic of Ireland in Dublin on 24 March. 

Liverpool's Ben Woodburn has been included in the senior team squad for the first time, having impressed for Wales at intermediate level. 

Milton Keynes Dons defender Joe Walsh is another uncapped player to be included in Coleman's squad for the crucial match at the Aviva Stadium next week and former Abersytwyth Town striker, Tom Bradshaw, returns to the fold after winning his first cap against Ukraine in March 2016. 

Wales currently sit third in qualifying group D, two points behind Serbia in second and four points adrift of the Republic of Ireland in first place.
