Nyatanga: Wales call

Wales boss Chris Coleman has added Lewin Nyatanga to his squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Scotland and Croatia.

Coleman was hit by the withdrawals of Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen and Leeds striker Steve Morison due to injury over the weekend, with forward Jermaine Easter the only immediate replacement.

But the FAW confirmed Bristol City defender Nyatanga, 24, will be given the opportunity to add to his 34 caps in a game where Wales are looking to build on their encouraging win over Austria last month in the qualifying double-header.

Coleman's men are seven points adrift of Group A pacesetters Croatia and Belgium and face an uphill battle if they are to end their long wait for a place at a major finals.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
