David Edwards admits he is relieved to be back to full fitness and has already set his sights on regaining his place in the Wales midfield.

His seven months out of the game with a back injury has coincided with a Welsh revival under Gary Speed, and with Aaron Ramsey having assumed the captaincy and the likes of Joe Allen staking an impressive claim for a starting role, competition for a midfield place is as fierce as it has ever been during Edwards' international career.

"The midfield is the strongest part of the team," said Edwards. "It is very competitive. You have the likes of Joe Allen, who has been phenomenal this season, he ran the show in Swansea's game against Wolves. Andrew Crofts is playing in the Premier League and then you have Joe Ledley and Jack Collison and the list goes on."
