Joe Ledley finds himself in the almost surreal position of captaining Wales at just 22 and offering to "look after" younger players. He will wear the Wales armband for the first time in a competitive international today aware he is in charge of young players even more fresh-faced than he is.

It was difficult to tell who was the more frustrated at the news that Roman Pavlyuchenko will be appearing in Moscow tonight in Russia's World Cup qualifier against Wales – Tottenham or John Toshack. While the former saw a written plea rejected for their new £14m striker to be rested because of what they claim is an ankle injury, the latter would have simply been bemoaning that Guus Hiddink will enjoy a near full-strength squad, while his own is drastically depleted.

Among all the dramatic and doom-laden suggestions this week of how to deal with Russia after Georgia, one of the most naive must be the suggestion that we can somehow separate the politics from the commerce, playing hardball with the one and softball with the other.
