Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and Craig Bellamy all return for Gary Speed's first competitive match as Wales manager against England next week.

The trio have all been named in Speed's 25-man squad for the Euro 2012 qualifier at the Millennium Stadium in eight days' time.

Arsenal youngster Ramsey could feature for his country for the first time since November 2009 after recovering from the horrific broken leg suffered last year. Bale and Bellamy also both missed last month's Carling Nations Cup loss to the Republic of Ireland in Dublin.

West Ham defender Danny Gabbidon is included after coming out of international retirement for Speed and will hope to feature after being forced to withdraw from the Ireland game.

Striker Robert Earnshaw is in the squad despite being ruled out of action by Nottingham Forest due to a hamstring injury.

Speed has not yet announced who will be captain with defenders James Collins and Ashley Williams the leading contenders.
