Wales coach Chris Coleman has welcomed defensive trio James Chester, Paul Dummett and Adam Matthews back into his Wales squad. Absentees from the previous squad in the victory against Israel include injured stars Ben Davies, Sam Ricketts, Dave Edwards and James Collins. However, midfielder Andy King returns from suspension.
The Group B match against Belgium takes place at Cardiff City Stadium on 12th June, and Coleman was in optimistic mood when he announced his squad on Tuesday.
"We can take positives on the back of the Israel camp," said Coleman. "It was a great performance, but more importantly three points. Both [Collins and Davies] were key, they were magnificent playing either side of Ashley Williams in defence, so it is a blow. It's rarely the same squad twice. We learn to deal with it and we just have to get on with it. The players that are coming in are good players also."
Coleman also paid tribute to talisman Gareth Bale, who is set to earn his 50th cap. "His performances have been outstanding. He's a credit, you see his reactions in the game and what it means to him. He will get another fifty caps."
