Earnshaw and Robinson in Wales squad
January signings Robert Earnshaw and Carl Robinson are in John Toshack's squad as Wales begin preparations for their 2008 European Championships qualifiers. Their opponents will have the more pressing engagements with England, Sweden and Trinidad and Tobago on their minds.
Earnshaw, who has scored nine times in his 23 caps, will hope to cement a starting place in Toshack's line-up amongst the likes of John Hartson and former Norwich star Craig Bellamy. Robinson has 25 caps and seems firmly in the manager's plans. Despite his sporadic appearances for Sunderland prior to his switch to Carrow Road, the midfielder has started five of Wales' six internationals this season.
