Aaron Ramsey has been replaced as Wales captain by Swansea defender Ashley Williams for this month’s World Cup qualifiers.

Wales face Scotland and Croatia in the next two weeks and Chris Coleman decided on a change of leadership after five straight defeats and they sit bottom of their qualifying group after two straight losses.

West Ham defender James Collins, who was red carded in the opening qualifier against Belgium and could be given an extended ban, is also left out of the squad.
