Wales will be without Gareth Bale for Saturday’s 2012 European Championship Group G qualifier against England.
The Tottenham left-sided player is out with a hamstring injury, but Aston Villa centre-back James Collins is fit after overcoming a calf injury.
England coach Fabio Capello has said midfielder Jack Wilshere will start the match while striker Andy Carroll will not play the full 90 minutes.
Keeper Ben Foster has pulled out of the squad because of a throat infection.
West Brom stopper Scott Carson has replaced his Birmingham counterpart for the match at the Millennium Stadium.
Arsenal’s Wilshere will make his first competitive start for England and Capello explained: “Jack is a young player who has improved a lot in a short time. He was an interesting player, when he played his first game with us he was good, but young.
“Now he is playing like a player who has played a lot of games, like a 28 or 29-year-old. He plays the game fantastically with personality and without fear.
“It’s not easy to find players like him who play without fear in places like the Nou Camp. I spoke with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger and he told him he was also surprised by how he had improved so much in so short a time.”
The Italian coach also hinted that he is likely to play Carroll alongside Wayne Rooney in attack for some of the match.
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish gave his view last weekend that £35m-signing Carroll was not yet fully fit after only recently having made his first start for the Reds since joining in January.
Capello said: “I have monitored Carroll in the games that he has played and I went to see him personally.
“He is not at the level that he played before he got injured, he is not fit to play for 90 minutes.”
England will also be without midfielder Steven Gerrard [groin] and Manchester United centre-back Rio Ferdinand, who has been sidelined for more than two months with a calf injury.
Ferdinand was replaced by Chelsea’s John Terry as team captain this week. And the reinstated skipper is likely to be partnered by either Phil Jagielka of Everton or Tottenham’s Michael Dawson at the heart of the defence.
Wales coach Gary Speed, who elected to make Arsenal’s 20-year-old midfielder Aaron Ramsey his permanent captain this week, has seen his options depleted ahead of the match.
Apart from Bale’s absence, Nottingham Forest striker Rob Earnshaw has a hamstring injury and is unavailable, while Bolton Wanderers full-back Sam Ricketts [Achilles tendon], is out for the rest of the season.
West Ham’s Jack Collison [knee] and fellow midfielder Wolves’ Dave Edwards [back] are also sidelined.
