The Squad:
Michel Vorm, Ashley Williams, Alan Tate, Leon Britton, Andrea Orlandi, Danny Graham, Wayne Routledge, Garry Monk, Luke Moore, Angel Rangel, Kemy Agustien, Mark Gower, Gerhard Tremmel, Fede Bessone, Chico, Jonathan De Guzman, Gwion Edwards, Jazz Richards, Nathan Dyer, Stephen Dobbie, Leroy Lita, Ben Davies, Michu.

Missing from the squad are Olympic trio Joe Allen, Scott Sinclair and Neil Taylor. Others not travelling are youngsters David Cornell, Darnel Situ, Curtis Obeng, Lee Lucas, Daneil Alfei, James Loveridge, Scott Tancock, Kurtis March and Rory Donnelly.

The squad will return on 2nd August before hosting two friendlies at the Liberty Stadium. The first against Blackpool on Tuesday 7th August and the second against Stuttgart on Saturday 11th August.
