Wales out to make history

10 October 2015

Wales will be bidding to join England and Northern Ireland in next summer's Euro 2016 finals when they take on Bosnia & Herzegovina this Saturday evening.

Chris Coleman's side need just a point from their remaining two matches to reach their first major tournament since the 1958 World Cup finals.

Rovers duo Adam Henley and Tom Lawrence are part of the 23-man squad that has travelled to Bosnia for the game in Zenica, with defender Henley excited that Wales are within touching distance of qualifying.

"There is an amazing feeling around the Wales camp at the moment, the whole country is behind the squad and there's a real feel-good factor," said Henley.

"All of the players can feel that and it obviously drives them on throughout the games.

"We were unlucky not to wrap it up against Israel at home, but there is still one more point to get and I'm sure with the way the team has been playing that we'll get that point to qualify."

If Wales fail to claim a draw or more against Bosnia they then face group minnows Andorra in their final match at the Cardiff City Stadium on Tuesday.

But whilst Wales would be strong favourites against an Andorra side that have yet to claim a point from the qualifying campaign, Henley would prefer it if their progress is assured before the last game.

"I think everyone wants to get it sorted as quickly as possible," added the Rovers full back. "A lot of people are saying that Andorra is the safety match as the last game of the campaign, but nobody wants to leave it until the last game.

"Hopefully we can get that point in Bosnia and have a celebration against Andorra."
