World Cup qualifiers: Robson-Kanu out of Wales squad for Serbia


Hal Robson-Kanu is the latest withdrawal from Wales’ squad for the World Cup qualifier against Serbia in Belgrade on Sunday.

The West Bromwich Albion striker’s place is taken by 17-year-old Swansea City winger Daniel James.

Liverpool forward Ben Woodburn earlier pulled out of the trip because of a calf injury.

Woodburn, 17, was replaced in the 23-man squad by another uncapped player, Marley Watkins.

Watkins, who has agreed a move to Norwich City from Barnsley, had been part of Wales’ recent training camp in Portugal.


Serbia are top of Group D, four points ahead of third-placed Wales with five games remaining.

Forward Gareth Bale and defender Neil Taylor are suspended for the game against Serbia, while defender James Collins and midfielders Andy King and Jonny Williams are injured.
