Wales manager Chris Coleman: We got frustrated after Ireland goal

Share

The draw for the play-offs will be held on 17 October in Switzerland.

Wales' 2018 World Cup hopes are over after James McClean's goal earned the Republic of Ireland a victory that sends them into the qualifying play-offs. They secured their qualification with a 2-0 win over Kosovo and are now off to Russian Federation.

Ireland ripped up the script by beating Wales 1-0 to secure their place in the playoffs for the World Cup finals on Monday.

Williams aside, the core of the side have one or two campaigns left in them.

It's not clear when he last took the drug. "I would open all sorts of things", Paddock told a lawyer in his deposition. Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock reportedly gambled all night and slept during the day.

The tense game at Cardiff City Stadium stands to be Chris Coleman's last as Wales manager in a competitive fixture, the architect of last year's Euro heroics having pledged to stand down after the current World Cup cycle.

"It's a tournament that's obviously only every four years and for a nation like Ireland to qualify would be a massive achievement".

Wales were one of the stories of Euro 2016 as they reached the semi-finals before being beaten by Portugal.

The Welsh FA (FAW) are expected to make a big offer to convince the former player to stay on as boss and defender Chris Gunter told the FAW board to blow Coleman away with their proposal.

In my opinion, an investment in BHP comes largely down to whether petroleum and iron ore prices remain favourable. The Firm is a producer of various commodities, including iron ore, metallurgical coal, copper and uranium.

Great work by Jeff Hendrick to win possession and keep the ball in play and great play from Harry Arter to dummy and catch the whole Welsh defence flat-footed. I asked them to leave me alone as my contract has been running down and all the questions were getting asked.

I think that the fact that they don't really seem phazed whoever they play - often players said what Christie just said, we don't mind, you figure it's just player talk - but no, with them it's really real. O'Neill's team travelled to Cardiff in search of a 1-0 win and their game-plan went to plan; soaking up challenging spells of pressure, accepting that on paper Wales are probably the better side, but making sure they were more clinical when it mattered most. There'll be a conversation in due course and my contract is until the summer.

Although Robson-Kanu had a header excellently saved by Randolph shortly before McClean's victor, Wales did not have the creativity or craft to unlock a stubborn visiting defence and Chris Coleman was left to reflect on a heartbreaking end to a campaign he has previously said would be his last as Wales manager. So I think this will be my last hit, at it so I will give it my best shot, but I would not consider going anywhere else. "When the dust settles we'll see where we go".
