Wales last competed in a major soccer tournament some 58 years ago and had never previously qualified for the European Cup, but that all changed when Chris Coleman’s side finished in second place in Group B during the qualification round. Coleman has improved on the hard work the late Gary Speed put into the Welsh team, and the Dragons have a self-belief that could see them cause a few upsets when Euro 2016 kicks off in June. The Welsh team has a solid spine throughout it, something that all good teams need.
Although it is in the midfield area where the Welsh are very strong.
Players such as Liverpool’s Joe Allen, Crystal Palace’s Joe Ledley, Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey and the Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale all playing there. The only real weakness in the Wales squad is its forwards, who netted only twice in a combined 29 games during qualifying.
