    He was playing conference football a few years back and just fired a side to their first ever title in this era

    He could burn my house down and I'd still love him

    Apart from a bit of nastiness on the pitch (In which case you go to hate Bergkamp and Zidane) what had Dele Alli ever done to make himself not likeable? I mean he is just so good.

    Have you ever seen a photo of the streets of Cyfanswm Solutions Rhwydwaith (as we like to refer to it) where no one's dancing?

    Haha it's the 'Aberdeen, Reading, Birmingham, Real Madrid' that gets me. Still surreal that one of this generation's Galacticos is a Welsh bloke called Gareth.

    All the more reason to dislike them.

    I hope all the countries from the British Isles do well. But not when they play England.

    I think I count 9 ringers: Ashley Williams, Chester, Edwards, Jonathan Williams, George Williams, King, Robson-Kanu, Church and Vokes.

    More Englishmen than most test XIs.

    Yeah. Good for them, I'm proud of it.

    I was born and raised in Wales; my parents were born and raised in England; one grandparent born and raised in Scotland. Who cares?

    If they choose to represent Wales, then that's a choice they've made, and good for them. If I was good enough to play international sports, I'd play for Wales. My sister, with identical upbringing, would choose to play for England. Her children, as far as I can make out, would split fifty-fifty, although none of them have ever lived in Wales.

    It's about what you choose. I'm happy those guys chose Wales.

    In fact, I'm happier those guys chose Wales than I would be if they hadn't had to choose.

    Yeah, that's all fine, but has to wonder how many of them would have chosen to play for Wales if, at the time of their initial selection, they were good enough to play for England.

    So, this is my thread, albeit with a generous dollop of promotion from Grecian, and I'm just going to say this, and I don't really care what anyone thinks about it.

    Tomorrow's match is probably something none of the rest of you have ever experienced, in the sense that, win or lose, it is the single biggest football match of my life.

    Coming from Swansea, not a hotbed of soccer when I was growing up there in the 60s and 70s, even taking into account the Toshack years and the yoyo up and down the divisions, even taking into account our elevation into the premiership in the last few years, even despite all of that, where I come from it's all meant to be about rugby. Soccer is just the punch-line to a cheap joke.

    And the national team were the biggest joke of all, routinely drubbed in qualifying tournaments by countries we'd hardly heard of ... the very idea we could make it to a major tournament was just a joke.

    So for Wales to have finally, for the first time in my life, qualified for a major tournament, and to play the BigBrother from across the Severn, knowing even a draw will probably be enough ...

    Tomorrow night, I'll be sitting in a sports bar somewhere in Shinjuku, and the Japanese kids will just assume I'm some old Englishman whose had too much to drink, and they will never know it's the greatest sporting moment in my life.
