Chris Coleman admits Wales tenure may be over after World Cup heartbreak

Chris Coleman admits Wales tenure may be over after World Cup heartbreak

'Please understand, Mr Whelan, that when you come from Creggan like myself or the Bogside, Brandywell or the majority of places in Derry, every person still lives in the shadow of one of the darkest days in Ireland's history - even if, like me, you were born nearly 20 years after the event.

The seeded teams are Italy, Croatia, Denmark and Switzerland.

Irish supporters in the away section lose their minds as players run to celebrate with fans.

"I think everyone in Wales would want to see him stay on - 100 per cent", Gunter said.

"Do I fear teams in it?" There was little to separate the sides in the 1-1 draw in Bari and the subsequent 2-2 stalemate at Croke Park.

Elsewhere, the Danish under-21 team continued with their dominance in their Euro 2019 qualification campaign. He was magnificent for us, around the camp, a captain on the field and a captain off the field, no question about that.

Typical, Italy, you would say in advance of major tournaments.

"Now, there is a barren year for the Welsh lads and there will be 12 months of just playing friendlies and then they will be starting the next year for the European Championship after the World Cup".

Switzerland came in second place in the poll with 28% of the vote.

Ireland now have a nervous wait for the play-off draw with the Irish desperate to avoid the big names.

BT Sport pundit Robbie Savage had to give credit where it was due after seeing his beloved nation concede to the Irish.

That's the nature of his job. "I was delighted with the result".

However Wales have not featured in a World Cup since 1958 and given the volatile nature of football managing, Toshack is not sure Coleman will be able to stay. It's great to see them back at the top again. Is there any chance of an Irish El Clásico (or An-Clasaiceach as it would be known) and meet Northern Ireland in a winner takes all two-legger, a game in the north of the country and a game in the southern half. That was the best experience I've had in football.

"It won't be easy but Chris is the man who can keep us focused and positive and show us how to get the results we need". He's a hero and then zero in an eyeblink or vice versa.

Former Norway manager Age Hareide is their coach and has won league titles in all of the Scandinavian countries.

What he has done for Welsh football has been amazing. They hosted the tournament in 1954, getting as far as the quarter-finals.

This was McClean, the character, who turned up uninvited at a Down's syndrome boys club the day after a friendly in Dublin in March.
