Chris Coleman confident of Wales’ World Cup qualification despite Serbia draw

Wales head coach Chris Coleman is confident that his team can overturn a four point deficit in the final four games of their World Cup campaign in order to clinch an automatic qualification spot.

The Euro 2016 semi-finalists were held to a 1-1 draw at Belgrade as Aaron Ramsey’s opener was equalised by Aleksandar Mitrovic, just as he did in Cardiff last November.


Hull City manager Marco Silva is yet to determine his next move following the relegation of the club to the Sky Bet Championship.

The coach is expected to meet with the club’s owners for discussions as he declined to commit his future to the club.

City fell to a heavy defeat in the hands of Crystal Palace, confirming that their status would change next season after a fight to remain. The manager joined in January as he agreed to a six-month deal. There was an option to remain for another year but Silva might decline.

Chris Coleman May Quit Wales Depending on World Cup 2018 Qualifiers in June

Wales manager Chris Coleman is reportedly planning to leave the national team if they lose the upcoming World Cup 2018 qualifier against Serbia.

The manager’s stock was at an all-time high exactly a year ago when he managed to get the national team to major success at the Euro 2016. However, Wales have been unable to sustain the success with the team struggling in the World Cup 2018 qualification group. The team has drawn the last four games without exception, and it has seen Wales dropped against Serbia and Republic of Ireland in the race to qualify for the World Cup.

Wales continues their search for the 2nd victory in their qualification campaign

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.

Coleman is the right man

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.

Gareth Bale Praises Chris Coleman for Attention to Detail

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.

Wales chances of qualifying for a World Cup will drastically increase

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.

Wales should improve

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 can still qualify

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.
