Red letter day for Welsh Dragons

Published Add your comment

Quite a day for the Welsh, through into the European Championships which will take place next year. For the first time in 57 long years, they will be competing against the big nations for a chance of glory.

This is a side boasting one of the best forward players in the world. But, it is not all about Gareth Bale - there is talent all over the pitch and not even the 2-0 defeat to Bosnia could dampen their spirits. Rightly so.

With Bale in the team, they deserve their chance to shine on the big stage and he will be key as their main goal threat.

Wales will be one of the 24 teams in the tournament which takes place next summer and they wasted no time in ordering people not to write them off. Neville Southall, who is Wales' record cap holder wrote on Twitter - '...Now go and try and win it...’ There is a belief in this side and they will get their shot at making a statement to Europe and the world next year.

Welsh pundits were delighted and plenty of Englishmen wrote on social media also. Everyone loves an underdog and I predict that many people will be right behind Wales in the competition.

Let’s hope that the Republic of Ireland can follow on from Wales, England and Northern Ireland in qualifying.

The summer just gone was extremely dull with no football and next summer already looks very promising.

Congratulations to Wales! I hear they also did well in the rugby...
