Bobby Gould, the Wales manager, has named an unchanged side for Saturday's World Cup qualifying match against San Marino in Cardiff.

Gould was delighted with the approach of his team, who won 5-0 in their Group Seven opener in San Marino in June. The Everton midfielder, Gary Speed, who missed that match as he was enjoying his honeymoon in the United States, has been recalled.

Scotland will give defender Colin Hendry another 48 hours to prove his fitness for Saturday's World Cup match against Austria in Vienna. Craig Brown leads his side into the new campaign with a question mark still against the Blackburn centre-half's participation. A scan on Hendry's groin has revealed no major damage, but Brown will wait until Saturday before deciding if he will play in the Ernst Happel Stadium.

WALES (v San Marino, World Cup Group Seven, Cardiff Arms Park, Saturday): Southall (Everton); Browning (Bristol Rovers), Bowen (West Ham), Melville (Sunderland), Coleman (Blackburn), Pembridge (Sheffield Wednesday), Horne (Everton), Robinson (Charlton), Giggs (Manchester United), Saunders (Nottingham Forest), Hughes (Chelsea).
