Robert Page, interim president of Wales, insists business « continues as usual » ahead of next month’s World Cup qualifiers draw, despite the uncertainty about position absent manager Ryan Giggs.
Wells heading to this draw supported by Wednesday’s 3-1 win over Finland in Cardiff, which secured promotion to the first division of the Nations League and effectively secured a place in the play-offs for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Paige was taking over interim responsibility for the third time after Giggs was arrested over an alleged feud with his girlfriend Kate Grevil at his Manchester home on November 1..
The 46-year-old former Manchester United star, who has denied all abuse allegations against him, has been released on bail amid an ongoing investigation into the Greater Manchester Police. .
The World Cup qualifying draw will be held in Switzerland on December 7, and Page said: “Business continues as usual.
Harry Wilson, Daniel James, and Keffer Moore scored against 10-man Finland as Welles scored more than two goals for the first time since defeating the Republic of Ireland 4-1 in September 2018.
Page praised the work done by Giggs after Welles secured his place with the European elite in the 2022-23 League of Nations.
« We knew the rewards were there, and you’re likely to get a place in the World Cup no matter where you end up in your group. ».
“What Ryan started with this campaign, which is not to lose and win the way we did, was a pleasure..
“I’m very proud of that group of players there, and so is Ryan. I spoke to Ryan right away at the end of the match.
“He is very proud of the players, how they approached their business and how they handled the camp, to show flexibility and win the group.
Wells gained the 1-player advantage after just 12 minutes when Finnish defender Jerry Oronen pulled Wilson back and passed the striker into goal..
Wilson opened the scoring after 29 minutes and James added the second moments after the start of the second half, before Norwich striker Timo Bucky gave a tense conclusion.. .
But Moore returns home six minutes early to ensure Wells, who have not lost a competitive match since June 2019 – a record 11 games – will finish at the top of Group B4.
Paige said after Welles scored twice in a match for the first time since qualifying for Euro 2020 last November.
“We demonstrated our intention from the first minute on the field and rose to the occasion.
