Teenage Swansea goalkeeper David Cornell has been given a shock call up for Wales' friendly with Scotland next Saturday.

The 18-year-old has made just one appearance for the Swans but was named in John Toshack's 23-man squad.

Midfielder Simon Davies, who has missed the last six games since foot surgery, returns for the match at Cardiff City Stadium.

West Ham defender Danny Gabbidon is also selected despite having been out for six weeks with calf and hip problems.

But there is no place in the squad for St Mirren midfielder Andy Dorman, who was hoping to be selected under the new school rule.

Dorman, who has been watched by Toshack's assistant Roy Evans, was born in Chester but grew up in Wales.

He had been looking to become the first senior player to benefit from a recent rule change which allows British passport holders to represent any of the home nations, provided they have been educated in that country for five years.

Wales squad for the friendly with Scotland at Cardiff City Stadium on November 14 (kick-off 3pm):

Jason Brown (Blackburn), David Cornell (Swansea), Wayne Hennessey (Wolves); Gareth Bale (Tottenham), James Collins (Aston Villa), Danny Gabbidon (West Ham), Chris Gunter (Nottingham Forest), Craig Morgan (Peterborough), Lewin Nyatanga (Bristol City), Sam Ricketts (Bolton), Ashley Williams (Swansea); Jack Collison (West Ham), David Cotterill (Sheffield United), Simon Davies (Fulham), David Edwards (Wolves), Andy King (Leicester), Joe Ledley (Cardiff), Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal); Craig Bellamy (Manchester City), Simon Church (Reading), Ched Evans (Sheffield United), Jermaine Easter (MK Dons), Sam Vokes (Wolves).
