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.
Llanelli AFC, who have won the Welsh Premier league in the past, have wound up after incurring more than £ 20,000 in tax debts. The club was formed in 1896 and it was one of the founding members of the league, when it was started in 1992.
The size of the debts at the club has been under a microscope for the last one year. Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has said that the club took no steps in order to repay the £ 3000 debt. This is not the first time that the club has come close to being wound up. However, they survived the scare on three occasions.
The Welsh Premier league club Llanelli AFC have decided to appoint Ken Francis as the replacement for Nitin Parekh, who recently stepped down from his role as the chairman of the club.
Parekh stated that he was stepping down from his role due to family and work commitments. Parekh has been the chairman of Llanelli AFC since 2005. A statement released on the official website of the club stated that Ken will be working towards improving the profile of the club in the community. Ken Francis stated that it is a privilege to be taking over as the chairman of a club like Llanelli AFC.
The Welsh national team manager Chris Coleman has said that he hopes that the 2013 will be a positive year for the national team. The former Fulham manager has not been able to produce the results since taking over from the late Gary Speed almost a year ago.
The Welsh national team manager Chris Coleman has revealed that he had to think long and hard about taking the managerial role following the death of Gary Speed. After the demise of the former Bolton Wanderers player, the reigns of the national team were handed to the former Fulham manager.
He has so far been a major disappointment, as he has not been able to get the results many people expected the national team to get due to the presence of players like Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey. The national team is no longer searching for the successor for Ryan Giggs.
The Tottenham winger Gareth Bale helped the club finally break a very bad record against Manchester United in the league after he scored the second goal against the former Premier league champions to record a 3-2 win for Andre Villas-Boas and his men.
