Liverpool right-back Neco Williams and Swansea centre-half Ben Cabango have been called into the Wales senior squad for the first time.

Hal Robson-Kanu has been called up for the first time since 2017 after previously announcing his retirement from international football.

The West Brom forward made himself available for international selection earlier this year.

There is also a place in the squad for Manchester United midfielder Dylan Levitt, 19, who is yet to make his debut for his country, despite twice being called into squads last year.

UEFA has confirmed these matches will be played behind closed doors due to the current pandemic.

Full Wales squad:

Goalkeepers: Wayne Hennessy (Crystal Palace), Danny Ward (Leicester City), Adam Davies (Stoke City)

Defenders: Chris Gunter, Ashley Williams, Ben Davies (Tottenham), Conner Roberts (Swansea City), Tom Lockyer (Charlton Athletic), Ethan Ampadu (Charlton Athletic), James Lawrence (Anderlecht), Ben Cabango (Swansea City), Neco Williams (Liverpool)
