The Golden Generation is Crowned

TUESDAY 13th OCTOBER: Cardiff City Stadium- a chilly autumn evening
WALES 2 ANDORRA 0 (UEFA Euro 2016 Qualifying Group B)
Five weeks on from that warm September afternoon when Chris Coleman's team drew 0-0 with Israel and didn't quite clinch their place at Euro 2016, we're back at Cardiff City Stadium. In that five weeks a lot has happened, apart from summer turning to autumn: Wales have played in Bosnia (and lost) but they have now qualified, thanks to Israel dropping points that mean they can't reach second place in the group. So tonight's game is without pressure - and it's widely anticipated as a time to party and celebrate. Of course, Wales want to avoid the embarrassment of failing to despatch the part-timers of Andorra, but everyone assumes that's a formality. Andorra have never won a competitive international - but we all remember that they came close in the very first game in this group, leading 1-0 until two late Gareth Bale goals set Wales on the path to glory.
