Norwich City midfielder Andrew Crofts, who scored a debut goal in the 3-2 home defeat by Watford on Friday night, has been included in the Wales squad for the international friendly against Luxembourg at Llanelli next Wednesday.

The Luxembourg clash at Parc y Scarlets is manager John Toshack's last opportunity to work with his side before the Euro 2012 qualifiers begin with a trip to Montenegro next month.

The match has caused consternation as it clashes with the opening round of the Carling Cup - City face Gillingham at Carrow Road on Tuesday night and Crofts will not be available - and comes just three days before the Premier League starts.

Toshack is braced for complaints from various club managers.
