Tomorrow, Wales return to Belgrade for The Dragon’s crucial World Cup qualification and manager, Chris Coleman, wants to win more than three points away from home.

Without Neil Taylor, Hal Robson-Kanu and star Gareth Bale, it will be a very tough task to gain all three points. However, Wales’ head coach will be hopeful to get a result after Coleman insisted he was to blame for arguably the lowest point of his five-year reign as manager of the national team.

“As soon as I got off the plane I felt it,” Coleman said. “I had butterflies in my stomach. I thought ‘Here we go again, I remember this place’.

“I can’t say this is another game in the group because it’s not for more than one reason. And one of the reasons is that. I suffered there, we suffered there – and it was my fault. That will never leave me.”

Chris Coleman has done a brilliant job with Wales. Replacing the late, and great, Garry Speed. He has done the nation, Welsh football and Garry proud irrespective of qualification. Despite all this, ‘that night in Serbia’ will never be forgotten and has changed the national team forever in a positive fashion. Goals from Aleksandar Kolarov, Zoran Tosic, Filip Djuricic, Dusan Tadic, Branislav Ivanovic and Miralem Sulejmani completed the demolition.

 

Although qualification looks unlikely, the team have much to be proud of. If Wales can get a result tomorrow, the pressure is back on Serbia and Republic Of Ireland at the top of the group.
