Former Reading captain Chris Gunter is to appear in Wales' first World Cup since 1958, having been included in Rob Page's final squad.

The full-back is the highest-capped Welsh player of all time, with 109 to his name at time of writing.

A regular in League Two with AFC Wimbledon, the 33-year-old has not played in the top two tiers since leaving Reading in 2020.

He made almost 350 appearances for the Royals in eight years, including 20 Premier League starts.

Gunter will be up against Burnley's Connor Roberts for the right full-back position.

This will be his third major tournament with his country, having been a key member of their Euro 2016 team which reached the semi-final and was involved in their Euro 2020 campaign.

Wales, as they were in Euro 2016, will come up against England in the final group game of the opening phase.

Iran and USA also stand between the Welsh and a place in the knockout rounds.

Wales reached the quarter-final of the World Cup in their only previous appearance, losing to eventual winners Brazil in Sweden in 1958.

Stars such as Gareth Bale, Brennan Johnson and Aaron Ramsey will be expected to fire Cymru far.
