It comes after FIFA announced they had opened disciplinary proceedings against Wales in relation to their act of remembrance at the World Cup qualifying match against Serbia earlier this month.

The 27-year-old will attend the ceremony after being nominated for the Puskas Award for his goal against Belgium at Euro 2016.

Justin Tipuric expects 'pumped up' South Africa

Wales flanker Justin Tipuric expects South Africa to be "pretty pumped up" for Saturday's clash at the Principality Stadium.

Wales name their team later today.

The Springboks recent record includes a home loss to Ireland, an historic first defeat against Italy, a 37-point drubbing by England and a record home reversal against world champions New Zealand, while they were also beaten in Argentina.

While Wales are seeking a third successive win against all opponents - albeit a week after substitute Sam Davies' drop-goal got them out of jail against Japan - they have only toppled South Africa twice in 31 previous meetings.

It is a massive game against South Africa. They will be pretty pumped up this weekend. They are a wounded animal at the minute and are coming under a lot of pressure at home. They will be coming here and fighting for everything.

There is pressure in any international game. If we win this weekend it will equal the most successful autumn campaign ever (for Wales), but it won't be easy. We know we have to go out there and perform.

The South Korean has featured in all five matches since Bob Bradley became manager, but is now set for a spell on the sidelines.

Elsewhere Leon Britton, who missed Swansea's draw with Everton with a tight calf, is on course to return to the squad ahead of Saturday's match with Crystal Palace.

Wait to find out extent of Gareth Bales' injury

Real Madrid and Wales face an anxious wait to discover the extent of Gareth Bale's ankle injury, after the forward was taken off in their 2-1 Champions League win over Sporting Lisbon last night.

Bale hobbled off just before the hour mark at Estadio Jose Alvalade.

The Welshman, who had been in impressive form for Real, could now be facing a race against time to be fit for El Clasico against Barcelona on December 3rd, as well as the table-topping showdown with Group F rivals Borussia Dortmund.

Gareth Bale suffered more of an ankle twist than a knock, but we will have to wait and see what the problem is. Tomorrow (Wednesday) he will be examined by our medical staff and after that we will find out (more).
