Real Madrid star Gareth Bale will not feature against Northern Ireland in next week’s friendly in Cardiff.
Bale has been left out of the Welsh squad for the game – and the fixture against Ukraine.
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey and West Ham defender James Collins are also absent from Chris Coleman’s squad.
Coleman said Bale’s absence was a joint decision between the Football Association of Wales and Real Madrid.
Northern Ireland play Wales in Cardiff on March 24 before hosting Slovenia four days later in Belfast.
