Well, the rumours were true after all it seems, and as forecast on here yesterday Brian Stock has been selected for John Toshack’s latest Wales squad. Rovers’ captain has been recalled for the national side for the first time since he pulled out of the squad last October with back problems. Stock is yet to appear for the full national side having been an unused substitute in both Luxembourg and Russian in the past eighteen months. Should Stock feature against Russia at the Millennium Stadium he will become Rovers’ first Welsh international in over 70 years.
Viva Rovers will be present at the Wales v Russia game and bringing you live coverage of the match via our twitter feed.
