Luton duo Joe Morrell and Tom Lockyer have been named in the team’s full squad for the upcoming European Championships.
Both players had originally been named in a larger provisional squad to be whittled down to a full final 26 man squad for the championships, which start on June 11th.
In manager Rob Page’s original squad announcement yesterday (30/05), winger Morrell had made the full squad for the Euros while defender Lockyer was not to be included.
But earlier today (31/05), it was confirmed Lockyer has been called up after an injury to St Pauli defender James Lawrence meant he will no longer be able to take part in the competition.
Morrell has been capped 14 times for the Welsh national team, though in an interview before the tournament, the 24-year-old has suggested he is looking to leave Luton a year after joining from Bristol City following a lack of game time.
Meanwhile, 26-year-old defender Lockyer had originally been left out. The defender had to have ankle surgery and has not played since February. His place in the full squad will see him seek to add to his 13 caps.
Wales are due to warm up for the Euros with friendlies against France and Austria this week. The team then play their first match against Switzerland in Group A on June 12th, with clashes against Turkey and Italy to follow.
Alongside Morrell and Lockyer, the squad includes places for superstar duo Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, experienced defenders Ben Davies and Chris Gunter, former Luton loanee Rhys Norrington-Davies and a spot for uncapped teenage midfielder Rubin Colwell.
