n the last century, Wales hasn't really been the team for us to say that they were any sort of team to challenge anything, honest. But in the last ten years Wales has moved up in the world rankings, from their lowest 109th in 2000 to currently 19th to date.
The past few managers and not forgetting Gary Speed, have worked hard to create a team who will improve upon from where they are now. In my opinion, past players who have worn the Welsh shirt haven't reached a European or World knockout. In the past there have been outstanding players, such as Ryan Giggs, Ian Rush, Craig Bellamy and many more, but those players couldn't achieve what the team in 2016 managed - to to get to the Euro 2016 semi finals. For me, being an Englishman, I believe that Wales went on to achieve more than they should have and they should be proud of themselves.
For the coming years I believe that Wales can become one of the top ten International teams in the world. I always will say England will always be better than Wales, but being realisic I think Wales can become better than anyone in the World as they bring younger players through on to the international stage. I believe that is good for both players for Wales and players clubs.
I really do hope that Wales can contiune their good progression and reach future knockouts and reach finals, but I do hope England reaches the same finals and beats Wales.
Good Luck Wales.
