Morrison, Allen dropped out of Wales squad, Easter called up

Wales has suffered a major blow with the news Joe Allen and Steve Morison are unavailable for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Scotland and Croatia due to injuries.

Liverpool midfielder Allen has suffered a shoulder injury which will keep him on the sidelines for up until summer, while Leeds forward Morison has picked up a calf injury. Chris Coleman has decided to call up Milwall loanee Jermaine Easter to expand his midfield options.

Joe Allen is set to undergo a surgery following the aggravation of his shoulder problem, a procedure that requires up to three months of recovery. Both Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers and Allen are keen to have the operation as soon as possible to guarantee the player will be available for selection the next season.
