The 22-year-old Celtic defender follows Reading winger Hal Robson-Kanu and West Ham's James Collins in withdrawing from Chris Coleman's squad for the away game on September 9.

A statement from the Football Association of Wales said Cardiff's Declan John had been called up from the Under-21s to replace Matthews. Newcastle's Paul Dummett and Reading's Jake Taylor have already received late calls.
