Hartson to be recalled for Wales

Supersized lump of bulldozer lard, John Hartson, is set to be recalled to the Welsh national side. Hartson is expected to join up with the squad for their matches against Cyprus and Slovakia.

Hartson, now a ripe old 31, retired from Wales duty in February, but made himself available again last month for emergencies. With doubts over Ryan Giggs' fitness and Wales' poor scoring record in recent games, manager John Toshack must look at every possible option. This could also mean a lifeline for fellow Baggie Jason Koumas is also set for a recall after proving his fitness.
