By Sedara Oluwadara

Gareth Bale is among the 26 to be selected by Rob Page in Wales’ World Cup squad.

There were concerns about the former Tottenham and Real Madrid man’s fitness, but Wales’ talisman has unsurprisingly been selected.

Joining Bale on the plane is Tottenham defender Ben Davies and Nice midfielder Aaron Ramsey, who have been stalwarts in Wales’ rise in recent years.

The trio were part of their squads at Euro 2016 and Euro 2020Nottingham Forest duo Brennan Johnson and Neco Williams make the cut, as do Bournemouth pair Chris Mepham and Kieffer Moore.

Chelsea’s Ethan Ampadu, who’s on loan at Serie A club Spezia, Leeds winger Daniel James and his loan teammate at Fulham Harry Wilson have also been selected.

Chris Gunter, who is Wales’ record appearance holder with 109 caps, also makes it into Page’s squad.

Wales begin their campaign in Qatar against the USA on November 21.

They then take on Iran on November 25 and then rivals England on November 29
