Simon Church, who scored his debut goal for Wales' senior side in the 3-0 victory over Scotland, has been called-up for the UEFA Under-21 Championship qualifier against Bosnia-Herzegovina on Wednesday.

He was one of eight players on duty for the win over Scotland who were named on Sunday in Brian Flynn's revised squad for the group three clash in Sarajevo.

Wales are top of their group, and, following Italy's 2-0 defeat in Hungary on Friday, a victory on Wednesday will ensure a play-off spot.

Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey is out with a back injury but Church, Ched Evans, Joe Allen, Andy King and Sam Vokes - who all played against the Scots - are in the under-21s.

Other senior squad members, Adam Matthews, Darcy Blake and David Cornell are also in Flynn's party.

They will train at Manchester United's Carrington headquarters tomorrow before flying to Bosnia.
