Veteran striker Craig Bellamy has returned to the Wales squad for their friendly against Austria in Swansea.
The 33-year-old Cardiff forward has missed the first four matches of the Dragons' World Cup qualifying campaign - not featuring since the 2-0 defeat to Bosnia-Herzegovina in August.
But Bellamy has been named in Chris Coleman's squad for Wednesday's clash at the Liberty Stadium and is likely to get the chance to add to his 70 caps and 19 goals for Wales.
Coleman had asked the former Liverpool and Newcastle man to clarify his future plans but the matter seems to have been resolved.
Ashley Williams retains the captaincy, having taken over from previous incumbent Aaron Ramsey ahead of the October qualifiers against Scotland and Croatia.
West Ham midfielder Jack Collison is another to return to the squad after suffering from knee injury problems but Steve Morison misses out through the injury.
