(Reuters) - Wales striker Hal Robson-Kanu has withdrawn from the squad for their World Cup qualifier against Serbia on Sunday, the Football Association of Wales (FAW) said on its official Twitter account.

Robson-Kanu, who scored three goals in 29 Premier League appearances for West Bromwich Albion last season, is the second striker to withdraw from the squad after Liverpool’s Ben Woodburn sustained a calf injury.

No reason was given for his withdrawal.

Swansea City and Wales under-20 forward Daniel James will replace Robson-Kanu in the squad as Wales try to cut down the four-point gap to leaders Serbia and Ireland in UEFA Group D.

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale is suspended for the match in Belgrade.
