Defender sustained hamstring injury with Sheffield United
Wales hopeful Swansea’s Joe Allen will be fit to play in Qatar
Rhys Norrington-Davies is set to miss the World Cup owing to a hamstring injury sustained playing for Sheffield United but Wales are hopeful Joe Allen will be fit for the tournament in Qatar.
Norrington-Davies has been one of the most consistent performers for Paul Heckingbottom’s high-flying Blades side and was in line to be in Wales’s 26-man squad for their first World Cup in 64 years. The 23-year-old has 13 caps but the versatile wing-back, who has also played at centre-back, sustained the injury at Coventry last Wednesday.
