Savage puts boot into wounded Wales

Talk about kicking your own dog when it is down. Robbie Savage went on national radio yesterday predicting his country will be "hammered" by Germany at the Millennium Stadium this evening. A wise and brave man, is that Savage...

Bellamy back in spotlight but Wales still lack fizz

Wales 2 Liechtenstein 0

Bellamy returns to swell Welsh mood of optimism

With their captain, Craig Bellamy, back to restore the zip and the zest in a system devised in his image it should all be so straightforward for Wales against Liechtenstein at the Millennium Stadium this evening.

Vienna humiliation leaves Domenech feeling the heat

Raymond Domenech held on to his job by his fingertips after leading France through a diabolical Euro 2008. They were hammered by the Dutch, drew with Romania and lost to Italy, scoring just one goal in the process before heading home.
