Joe Ledley has been included in Wales' 23-man squad for Euro 2016. The 29-year-old Crystal Palace midfielder was a major doubt for Chris Coleman's men after suffering a leg fracture against Stoke City earlier this month, but has recovered in time to take his place in the squad.

Ledley will be joined on the plane to France by Fulham's 20-year-old forward George Williams and Swansea City centre-back Ashley Williams, 31, who will captain his country during the much-anticipated tournament.

Coleman said he hopes to have Ledley fit and available for Wales' first match in the tournament, which is against Slovakia in Bordeaux on 11 June. "With this type of injury, he's ahead of the curve. We think he's got a good chance for that [Slovakia] game," he said, according to the BBC.

Also included in Coleman's squad is Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey and Real Madrid's two-time Champions League winner Gareth Bale, who scored seven goals for Wales as they qualified for their first major tournament since the 1958 World Cup.

Meanwhile, Coleman has chosen to omit Emyr Huws, Adam Matthews and Newcastle United defender Paul Dummett from his final squad. "With Emyr, there's a host of players in that midfield," said Coleman. "He's young, he's got a bit of experience but he's in good company in that midfield."

In addition to Slovakia, Wales will face Roy Hodgson's England in Lens on 16 and Russia in Toulouse on 20 June.
