Page has named an experienced squad, with Sunderland forward Broadhead – on loan from Everton – the only uncapped player included after scoring 13 goals in all competitions this season.

Wales have three players with a century of caps in Wayne Hennessey, Chris Gunter and captain Gareth Bale, while Ben Davies, Joe Allen and Aaron Ramsey – fresh from his penalty miss for Rangers in Wednesday’s Europa League final – have more than 200 appearances between them.

Wales moved one step closer to their first World Cup since 1958 as Bale stole the show in a 2-1 win over Austria in the play-off semi-final in March.
