The Welsh national football side is trying to secure their 2nd triumph for their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification journey which has seen them drawing 4 matches and winning 1 match out of their 5 opening matches.


The latest qualification match of Wales saw them facing off with Republic of Ireland in a match that was played on March 24 the result was a goal-less as neither national side managed to score a single goal and they had to settle with 1 point from the match.

Wales winger Gareth Bale has given his support to manager Chris Coleman despite the poor run of form that the team has been in.


He believes that Chris Coleman is the right man for the job and that he deserves to lead Wales to the 2018 World Cup.

Gareth Bale said that Chris Coleman is an amazing manager and that he has done a lot for the Welsh team during his time as manager. He stated that the manager has always been an inspiring person and it is important that fans remain behind him.

Welsh superstar Gareth Bale says that one of the reasons that has led to the immense success for the national team under the regime of Chris Coleman is the attention to detail by the former Fulham manager.


Coleman took over the national team in difficult circumstances, and few expected him to achieve an incredible Euro 2016. Wales were the unlikely semifinalists in the Euro 2016, and many felt that they could have overcome eventual winners Portugal had key players like Aaron Ramsey been fit for the game.

The Welsh national football team has not been able to compete or qualify for any FIFA World Cup since 1958 where they managed to reach the quarter-finals before eventually being knocked-out.


There is a big chance that Wales might be able to start qualifying for the biggest football competition in the world soon, it was recently announced that the FIFA World Cup was going to expand from having 32 teams to 48 national sides.

Chris Coleman believes that the Wales national team should continue to progress if they want to challenge the best teams in world football.


He admitted that the team had made considerable progress during the past years, but it is important that they continue to develop.

2016 was a brilliant year for Wales, football-wise.


The country had a good campaign at the Euro 2016 hosted in France – reaching the semi-finals despite the odds. The Chris Coleman side were ranked 12th in the football world by the latest FIFA rankings, reports say. Their archrival England, who exited the European tournament in the round of 16, placed 13th to the delight of the Welsh side.

Wales and Real Madrid midfielder Gareth Bale believes that the Wales national team can still qualify for the World Cup in Russia despite their poor run of form.


Indeed Wales has failed to replicate the good form that they showed in the Euros in France and currently find themselves trailing in the qualifying table for the 2018 World Cup.

Wales National football team captain Ashley Williams has said that his side can go on to top their group in the ongoing World Cup qualifiers.


Wales are currently gunning for a first World Cup finals appearance since 1958. They however suffered a huge blow after a draw by Serbia set them back

Austria’s coach, Marcel Koller said it was luck and good fortune for Wales to escape through Belgium in their 3-1 victory during the quarter finals of theEuro 2016.


Chris Coleman's men managed to find their ways to the last four in France before missing out on a place in the final. This was due to the 2-0 defeat handed them by the reigning champions, Portugal in Lyon, France.

After managing a stunning performance at the Euro 2016, Chris Coleman and his team have received praise from various quarters.


One of the most important elements will be not to allow this praise to get to the head. Wales are already showing signs of complacency after managing only draws against Georgia and Austria in the World Cup 2018 qualification campaign. Wales started the campaign with a comfortable 4-0 win over Andorra, but those days seem a long way back. Prior to the game, Coleman admitted that his team were depleted due to injuries but a draw against minnows Georgia is simply acceptable for a team with qualification – and even beyond – aspirations.
