Ryan Giggs names first Wales squad for China Cup

Ryan Giggs has named his first squad as manager for the China Cup, with Aaron Ramsey missing out through injury.

Gareth Bale is included in the squad, as are the uncapped Chris Mepham, Connor Roberts, Billy Bodin and Michael Crowe.

The 44-year-old has also announced a new backroom staff, with Osian Roberts, Tony Roberts, Albert Stuivenberg and Tony Strudwick all named.

Stuivenberg and Strudwick are well-known to Giggs, having previously had spells at Manchester United.

Ashley Williams will remain as captain, despite criticism of his performances in recent months for Everton.

The China Cup will be contested between Wales, Czech Republic, Uruguay and hosts China.
