Robson-Kanu and Gunter in Wales squad for crucial qualifier

26 May 2015

The Welsh host Belgium in Cardiff on June 12th

Reading duo Hal Robson-Kanu and Chris Gunter have been named in Wales’ squad for their important EURO 2016 qualifier against Belgium in Cardiff.

The clash takes place on June 12th at the Cardiff City Stadium and both nations, who are unbeaten in their respective campaigns thus far, will head into it separated only on goal difference.

Belgium are currently ranked third in the FIFA World Rankings and Wales boss Chris Coleman has labelled the clash as a huge game.

He said: "This is the biggest home game in the last ten years, certainly. These are two unbeaten sides looking to qualify for France. We had a fantastic performance and result in [our last qualifier against] Israel and we need to build on that.

"I know the match is a sell-out and the atmosphere again will be magnificent. The support to date has been fantastic. Hopefully we will be able to repay that support with a positive result.”

So far, Wales have recorded 11 points from their opening five Group B matches, beating Andorra, Cyprus and Israel, and picking up draws against Bosnia & Herzegovina and Belgium.
