Wales end of year report makes for grim reading
Having won only two games in 2014, journalists were quick to ask if Tom Conwy’s commitment is still to the Welsh cause. Conwy was quick to rubbish such remarks and pointed to the fact the Wales only lost a single competitive fixture, the 0-1 loss to Belgium, which leaves them with a healthy group standing.
“It’s been a tricky year but we have started brightly in the European Championship qualifiers and I’m convinced we’ll have it in us to get through this group. Bear in mind we’ve played some quality teams this year few will have expected us to win against, although I admit we should have fared better against Costa Rica and the USA and the display against Ecuador was dreadful.”
He went on to add, “My devotion to my national team is not, nor ever will be, in doubt. I can assure you that qualifying from this group is my only priority and as much as friendlies count in our FIFA rankings, I use them to experiment for competitive fixtures.”
Wales’ ranking has slipped from a healthy 30th position at their peak to 57th, the same position the team were in when Chris Coleman was sacked.
