Euro 2016: Joe Allen ruled out of Wales qualifiers


Joe Allen has been ruled out of Wales' Euro 2016 qualifier against Israel with a hamstring injury.

The Liverpool midfielder was suspended for the 3 September trip to Cyprus but will also miss the game with Israel three days later in Cardiff.

Defender Adam Matthews is also out after being injured in Sunderland's 6-3 League Cup win against Exeter.

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale is included having declared his fitness after a toe injury worry.

"When it initially happened [Bale's injury] you're holding your breath a bit, of course," admitted Wales manager Chris Coleman.

"But the scan and the feedback was positive thankfully so I don't think there's going to be a problem.
