Giggs Names Squad: Wales v Spain & Republic of Ireland

Ryan Giggs has made two changes to a 25-man squad for the international challenge match against Spain at the Principality Stadium and the UEFA Nations League encounter with Republic of Ireland in Dublin. 

With Joe Ledley and Tom Lockyer withdrawing through injury, Jazz Richards returns to the squad and George Thomas could be in line for his first competitive cap after scoring twice for the Under 21s against Liechtenstein last month.

The squad will face Spain at the Principality Stadium on the 11 October before travelling to Dublin to face the Republic of Ireland on 16 October in a reverse fixture to the 4-1 win in Cardiff last month.

Giggs will be hoping for a large crowd in Cardiff for the Spain game before the team continues their Nations League campaign where the winner of our Group is guaranteed a spot in the EURO 2020 play-offs.
