Wales manager John Toshack has recalled Craig Bellamy and James Collins for October's FIFA World Cup™ qualifiers against Liechtenstein and Germany.

Toshack welcomes back captain Bellamy and defenders Collins and Lewin Nyatanga after long-term injuries.

West Ham striker Bellamy has made two short substitute appearances after groin surgery, while club-mate Collins has yet to figure for the first team this season after a knee operation, but both are key figures for Toshack.

Nyatanga has been an unused substitute in Derby's last three matches against QPR, Cardiff and Sheffield United after an ankle problem.

Midfielder David Vaughan is also recalled, having ended his unhappy spell with Real Sociedad with a move to Blackpool.

Nottingham Forest's Arron Davies and Middlesbrough's Rhys Williams are both out through injury, while Wrexham defender Steve Evans has been omitted now Collins and Nyatanga are available.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey, who was in the last full squad, is now involved in Wales Under-21s' UEFA Championship play-off with England.

Paul Parry, who retired from international football midway through the last international week, but then claimed it was only because he did not want to play for Toshack is also left out.
