Sam Vokes named in Wales squad for first time in more than a year

Burnley striker Sam Vokes is named in the Wales squad for the first time in more than a year for this month's Euro 2016 qualifier against Israel.

Chris Coleman has named Burnley striker Sam Vokes in his latest Wales squad for the first time in more than a year.

The 25-year-old spent nine months on the sidelines with a knee injury, but made his first-team start in last weekend's 1-0 win over Manchester City.

Wayne Hennessey, Ashley Williams, James Collins, Ben Davies, Neil Taylor, Joe Allen, Joe Ledley, Aaron Ramsey and Tom Lawrence make up the Premier League contingent in the squad.

Real Madrid star Gareth Bale, who has been struggling to keep his club's fans happy, has also made the 23-man party for a Euro 2016 qualifier against Israel in Haifa on March 28.

Wales are currently second in Group B.

Wales squad to face Israel:

Goalkeepers: Wayne Hennessey (Crystal Palace), Owain Fon Williams (Tranmere Rovers), Daniel Ward (Liverpool)

Defenders: Ashley Williams (Swansea City), James Collins (West Ham United), Ben Davies (Tottenham Hotspur), Chris Gunter (Reading), Neil Taylor (Swansea City), Samuel Ricketts (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Ashley Richards (Swansea City - on loan with Fulham), Adam Henley (Blackburn Rovers)

Midfielders: Joe Allen (Liverpool), Joe Ledley (Crystal Palace), Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal), David Vaughan (Nottingham Forest), David Edwards (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Shaun MacDonald (AFC Bournemouth), David Cotterill (Birmingham City)

Forwards: Hal Robson-Kanu (Reading), Tom Lawrence (Leicester City), Gareth Bale (Real Madrid), Simon Church (Charlton Athletic), Sam Vokes (Burnley)
