Wales can cope without Bale - Allen

Wales can cope without Bale - Allen

Coleman would love to experience more of the same next summer but that World Cup dream will be fading fast if Wales come away from Belgrade with nothing.

Wales sit third in Group D with seven points from five games, trailing leaders Serbia by four points heading into Sunday's encounter. "I live for [games like these]". Two things - the respect we paid Slovakia for their anthem, which we should, the silence from us was great. "It's a different challenge for us". It's human nature that if you get so far, you expect a bit more and want a bit more. We're very resilient and we're a gritty team.

"What happened in between was unprecedented, nobody thought we were going to get to those dizzy heights".

Chris Coleman has always wanted Wales to focus on the future rather than basking in last summer's success, yet with Sunday's World Cup qualifier against Serbia taking place exactly a year after their opening match at Euro 2016, even the manager had to concede that it was impossible not to take a trip down memory lane.

"It was only a recce but I had butterflies in my stomach: 'Here we go, I remember this place, '" Coleman said, recalling the chastening defeat in Novi Sad that led to many Wales supporters calling for his resignation. "But we need to have it right to come here. But our mentality in any camp is, whether it's the first game or the last, that we approach it in the same way".

"If you look at our five games we've had one win and four draws".

The men were armed with identical 30-cm pink ceramic knives , strapped to their wrists with leather bound around the handle. Where have they come from? They also arrested a 28-year-old man in Barking, where the attackers had a safe house.

"We really should have beaten Serbia at home as we did enough to win but they equalised straight after we'd hit the post", he said.

"It's an important stage of the group and a big game for us, we're not going to shy away from that", Allen said. To compound matters, Hal Robson-Kanu withdrew from the squad on Thursday and added his name to an injury list that includes James Collins, Andy King and Ben Woodburn, leaving Wales looking rather depleted, especially in attack.

A defeat for Chris Coleman's men could all but end their qualification hopes and their cause has not been helped, with Real Madrid ace Bale suspended after picking up his second yellow card of the campaign during the 0-0 draw with Ireland in March.

"Aaron has the capabilities to run a football match".

"Other people say "this is 90 minutes, I'm going to enjoy this and it will make me better".

"Countless times I've been away on worldwide duty as a player and a manager, little things which people probably wouldn't see, " Coleman said.
