Wales are facing a number of injury problems ahead of their trip to Belgium this week.
Bale is already confirmed to be out for the match, as well as Aaron Ramsey, Harry Wilson and Adam Davies.
They have now been dealt a further blow with both Joe Allen and Ben Davies sidelined, meaning Page has turned to Birmingham City’s teenage midfielder Jordan James.
The 18-year-old is yet to earn his first senior cap after being called up to the Under-21 squad only last week.
James isn’t the only youngster that the Wales boss has put his trust in however, with 17-year-old Luke Harris also included in the squad.
The midfielder made his senior debut for Fulham this season in the EFL Cup and has also scored four goals in three matches for their U21 side.
Meanwhile, Wales will prepare to face the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Youri Tielemans and Eden Hazard - while both Romelu Lukaku and Divock Origi have been left out of Belgium’s side.
How are Wales faring in Group 4?
Ahead of their trip to Brussels, Wales sit at the bottom of Group 4 with only a point.
A win over Belgium could see the Dragons move up to third, however a spot in the top half is looking unlikely with Netherlands and Belgium picking up ten points and seven points respectively.
Despite claiming a draw against Belgium in June, the bookies have Roberto Martinez’s side as clear favourites for this week’s tie.
• Belgium - 4/11
• Draw - 7/2
• Wales - 7/1
