Hi, I have seen many people doing different stories about different nations, England, Scotland and Ireland have all got someone doing a story for them, so I just thought that I should do a Wales story.
Hope you like, my Birmingham city story will be continuing.
Good luck, The International stories sure are popular right now. I wonder if Bale can help you secure a good place in the qualifiers, I will be reading. :)

Yeah there is all we need is a cheeky Northern Ireland one and we have all the home nations. He better I'm probably going to be heavily relying on him, if I am to push for the Euro's.
good start; players like Sam Vokes and Ben Davies will also be vital :)
Good luck, can't wait to see what Bale and Ramsey will do :D
I never forget Wales. Always be among favourite nation that I would look for and sign players in. Just because of Ryan Giggs. Good luck mate!


After a shocking turn of events Chris Coleman has been sacked by the Welsh Football Association, they believe that with the players as his disposal they should have been challenging for the qualification places, which they aren't any where near at the moment.

Coleman's replacement is a unknown manager called Cameron Cox, this is the most surprising decision we have seen in many years, all we hope is that his inexperience internationally and in general managing a team, he doesn't drag Wales down with him. The Welsh FA soon backed up their decision to appoint him as there new manager by telling the press, "We are delighted with our choice, he of course wasn't our first choice, but at the interview he seemed like the only person that could lead this nation to glory."

A leading Welsh news paper had this news on the front page, the title being, HAVE THEY GONE MAD, This clearly shows that public opinion to the new manager isn't very great and we spoke to one supporter earlier one and this is what he had to say, "It's a fucking joke, if Coleman couldn't deliver the goods, why do the FA think that this English Bastard can do so."

We did get a chance to speak to Cox but only briefly, our reporter Ian Rush:

Ian- Hi Cameron, happy you could join us today.

Cameron- Hi Ian, it's my pleasure.

Ian- So how do you feel about become the Welsh National team manager?

Cameron- I feel its my genuine pleasure to guide this team to where their supporters want them to be, I'm not going to lie but I am shocked I was the man chosen but I suppose that doesn't matter now I just need to do my job the best I can.

Ian- As you know some of the Welsh media and fans have been pessimistic about you taking the helm of the Wales team, is there anything you'd like to say to them?

Cameron- I would just like to say to them, give me time, how am I meant to be successful with Wales if every time I read a newspaper they say Wales are doomed, or every time I walk past a Welshmen, I am called a English Bastard, It's really not on, I am here to show my critics up, and to win everything possible and I will certainly being doing all I can to make my mom and her family proud.

Ian- I know you have to go but could I just ask you this, we know that Wales has some good talent but if they are performing poorly will you still player them?

Cameron- I would like to say no, but I'm sorry if Bale isn't performing to well for Madrid who else is going to play as well as him? What I will say is that if you do performing well you can expect a chance in the team.

Ian- Thank you for your time Cameron, it's been brilliant talking to you, I personally wish you good luck for your future with Wales

Cameron- Again, it's my pleasure Ian, Thank you, hope to speak soon.
Nice update, lots of new international stories being made now! Ukraine, Colombia, Gibraltar, Wales! I'll be reading :)
Be good to see a wales story. good luck


This should be a game that even the Welsh win comfortably, but after the news that Chris Coleman has been replaced by unproven manager Cameron Cox, will only make their job harder.
But if he is anywhere near the quality the Welsh FA has said he is, they will smash the Andorrans.

After all the speculation about how his first game would go, the game is over and he has done it, his first ever win as Wales manager, it can be argued that the task could have been a lot more difficult but the first game is always the hardest and he has won it.

Here, is the coverage of the game:

1 min- Kick-off: Both teams look raring to go, Andorra kick off.

18 min- Chance: Gwion Edwards shot from 25 yards has been fired narrowly wide, very unlucky a little bit of curl and it would have been a goal. Brilliant build up play by Wales, a great pass by Ashley Williams to Aaron Ramsey and a brilliant switching pass to Edwards, he then cuts inside and has a pop from 25 yards.

22 min- Save: Majestic save by the Andorran keeper. Gwion robs the ball and crosses it in to find Sam Vokes head, he must have thought it was in, but Huguet has other ideas and spectacularly pushes the ball onto the post before finally holding onto the ball.

31 min- Chance: Free-kick to Wales after Lima chops down Vokes, Craig Bellamy to take, ohh dear he will be kicking himself after that one, he has scored so many of those types of free kicks in his life and to have not even have hit the target is disappointing.

36 min- Yellow Card: The first yellow card of the match goes to Joe Allen for tripping up Carrera.

39 min- Chance: Pulgar heads the ball to safety but the ball only goes as far as Ramsey, he tries to chip it over the defensive line, Barcos misreads the pass and actually heads it into Vokes path, he lets the ball bounce and strikes it on the half volley, it beats the goalkeeper but just couldn't beat the post, Wales are getting closer.

45 min- GOAL: At last we have seen a break view here and as expected it's gone to Wales, they have been by far the better team. Steve Morison is the scorer. Edwards picks the ball up from 30 yards runs to just outside the box and unleashes a fearsome shot at goal, the crossbar saves Andorra but luckily for Wales Morison was there to took the ball home, 1-0 Wales.

HT- The game seems tight on the scoreline but Wales have been in complete control and could easily be 3 or 4 to the good.

49 min- Chance: Wayne Hennessey makes a very comfortable save, Ortiz meets the cross of Doreste well, but just couldn't direct it anywhere but into Hennessey's hands.

51 min- Save: Huguet is playing a blinding game today another save from him , Neil Taylor crosses the ball into the box and Neal Eardley tries to control it, but instead it bounces of him and nearly catches Huguet by surprise, great reactions to knock the ball out for a corner.

54 min- GOAL: Huguet saves from the original corner and has to save again from another corner, only for this corner to meet the head of Ashley Williams, who was totally free in the area, Andorra will me disappointed with that goal. 2-0 Wales.

57 min- Chance: Ortiz beats Ramsey in the air, and the balls bounces towards Guillot, who crosses on the half volley to Lima who heads the ball narrowly wide, sigh of relief for Wales there.

59 min- GOAL: After confusion in the box Edwards is there to took away his first goal for Wales, what a debut aye. The goal coming from a corner which caused trouble in the Andorran box, it was eventually cleared but only to Ramsey who swings his left boot at the ball hitting it straight at the keeper, but he must have put some power into it as Huguet spills the ball and Edwards is in the right place to put the ball in the net. 3-0 Wales

73 min- Chance: The game had previously become quite boring with neither team threatening the opposition goal, and neither team able to hold onto possession. But one great piece of play between Guillot and Gumiel might have changed the mood. Guillot and Gumiel exchange passes before Gumiel chips the ball over the defense to Guillot, he hits it on the half volley, but it's just scrapped the crossbar on its way over.

FT: Just what Wales were expecting a very confident performance from them today, well done to new manager Cameron Cox for handling the pressure so well.
