Ryan Giggs has named 26 players in his squad for the upcoming UEFA Nations League group decider against Denmark at Cardiff City Stadium on Friday, 16 November. 
 
Wales currently sit top of League B Group 4, two points ahead of Denmark in second place and Giggs has named a squad that he feels will be capable of maintaining that top spot and winning promotion to League A. 
 
Wales will also play Albania in an international challenge match on Tuesday, 20 November in Elbasan.  
 
There’s a new face in the squad for the matches with Anderlecht defender James Lawrence receiving his first call-up to the international set-up.
