Review

This was always going to be a decisive week for Chris Coleman’s Wales. After playing the toughest away fixture of the group against Austria, they return home to Cardiff for what should be a straightforward match against Georgia. Get through this period, and Welsh success will become the norm rather than the exception.

Gareth Bale is just four goals short of Ian Rush’s record 28 goals for Wales. His continued presence emphasises just how settled the national side are; bar the injured Aaron Ramsey, the squad is essentially the same as it was during their Euro 2016 campaign. England would kill for that bedrock.

Summary

Wales v Georgia (Kick-off 5.00pm). All the action from the Group D contest, which takes place at the Cardiff City Stadium. This is the second game in four days for Chris Coleman's side, having made the trip to Austria for arguably their toughest away assignment of the group on Thursday. Their opening fixture of the campaign was a resounding 4-0 victory over Moldova, with Gareth Bale once again proving his worth on the international stage with a brace.
