Former Arsenal defender Tony Adams has criticised Roy Hodgson for not taking experienced players like John Terry and Ashley Cole to the World Cup 2014. Hodgson appeared to favour youth for this tournament, as he took the likes of Ross Barkley and Luke Shaw on the plane to Brazil. This meant that there was no place for Ashley Cole in the squad, while Hodgson did not also consider persuading John Terry to return from international retirement. The lack of experience proved vital at the World Cup, as England failed to create any impression.
Welsh national team boss Chris Coleman has stated that recently announced Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal will have a tough time in order to meet the expectations of the club. United recently parted company with David Moyes after just 10 months in charge. The former Everton manager struggled to cope with the intense pressure at United. Towards the end of the regime, he looked a very old and stressed out man. Coleman says that the pressure of managing a big club like United will definitely take its toll on van Gaal.
Wales national team manager Chris Coleman has said that he is confident of qualifying for the Euro 2016 despite the group stage. Wales have not made it into a major tournament for several years now. They once again failed to reach the World Cup 2014, but the expansion of the number of teams for the upcoming Euro 2016 has given them a lot of hope. A maximum of three teams can qualify from group for this major competition. Wales have been placed alongside the likes of Belgium, Israel, and Cyprus.
Wales national team manager Chris Coleman has ruled out of the potential return of star names like Ryan Giggs and Craig Bellamy for the upcoming Euro 2016 qualifiers. Wales have had a distinct lack of star names, but Giggs and Bellamy continued to remain as some of the best players to have represented the country.
Gareth Bale produced a stunning display of attacking football in the recent 3-1 win for Wales over Iceland. This led to the praise from national team manager Chris Coleman, who said that Bale is one of the best players he has ever worked with in his managerial career.
Wales have recently been given a tough qualifying group for the Euro 2016. They will be facing teams like France, Belgium, and Bosnia – who have qualified for the World Cup 2014 – in this qualifying group.
Even though there are minnows like Andorra, many reckon that Wales are unlikely to qualify for the European Championships due to the tough nature of the group. Wales manager Chris Coleman, though, is confident that his team can achieve qualification simply because most of his players will be at the peak condition by the time qualifying completes.
The Wales football team is going to play a friendly fixture against Iceland in March. That game will take place at Cardiff.
Although Wales will be playing in front of their home crowd in that game, but, things will not be easy for them and that’s because Iceland is not a weak team by any means.
Chris Coleman, the Wales manager, has stated that the opportunity to work with top stars like Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale was the important factor that led him to decide to join Wales in 2016 Euro Cup.
Chris Coleman’s deal was about to expire following friendly against Finland in Cardiff today. But now it is confirmed that he has signed a new 2 year deal with Wales. In the last few weeks, there was some speculation that the forty three year old might join Crystal Palace club.
Welsh defender Danny Gabbidon has said that he is hoping to impress national team manager Chris Coleman when he is in the stands to watch Crystal Palace take on Cardiff city.
This match will see the return of the Welsh defender, who has managed to get back into the Premier league after moving to Crystal Palace, in the top flight once again. He was one of the important players for the Welsh national team during his time at West Ham United. Chris Coleman now needs the support of a very good player he has at his disposal due to the poor form of the national team.
Llanelli AFC has been reformed as Llanelli Town after they went bust only recently. The new beginnings has also seen the arrival of a new chairman in the form of David Craddock.
He is a local businessman and has been a supporter of Llanelli for several years now. He has said that it is now his responsibility to get the club back where they belong in the Welsh Premier league. Craddock has said that this will be a great opportunity for him to make the club successful once again, while also being financially stable unlike in the past.
