• Martin O’Neill hails Republic of Ireland after sealing play-off berth

Chris Coleman admitted his time as Wales manager might be coming to an end after the 1-0 win that put the Republic of Ireland into the World Cup play-offs and left his own team reflecting on an agonising end to their bid to qualify for the tournament for the first time since 1958.

Coleman’s contract runs out next summer and he has previously indicated this would be his last qualifying programme in charge of the team he led to the Euro 2016 semi-finals.

Wales’s Chris Coleman braced for ‘hell of a game’ against Ireland in pivotal match

• Wales manager says Seamus Coleman injury controversy will not affect team
• Chris Coleman: team must show ‘same hunger and desire as we’ve always had’

Chris Coleman expects a physical game against the Republic of Ireland but is adamant that the bitter fall-out from the goalless draw in Dublin in March, when Seamus Coleman suffered a broken leg following a reckless challenge from Neil Taylor, will not affect Wales’s approach to Monday’s pivotal World Cup qualifier.

With Wales and Ireland both in with a chance of qualifying for the finals automatically after Serbia lost against Austria on Friday, the stakes could not be higher for what promises to be a highly charged occasion. Wales are second in Group D, one point ahead of Ireland, and the fractious nature of their meeting at the Aviva Stadium adds to the tension around what is in effect a winner-takes-all encounter.

Chris Coleman trumps England by giving Wales call-up to David Brooks

• Sheffield United midfielder opted to represent Wales over England
• ‘I’m sure that will cause one or two ripples on the other side of the Bridge’

Chris Coleman believes that his decision to call Sheffield United’s David Brooks into the senior Wales squad for the first time will cause “one or two ripples on the other side of the Bridge” as England face up to the likelihood of missing out on another talented dual-nationality prospect to their rivals.

Brooks, who was born in Warrington, stole the show when he represented England Under-21s in the summer in the Toulon tournament, having withdrawn from the Wales squad also competing in France. As well as scoring England’s goal against Ivory Coast in a final that they went on to win on penalties, Brooks was named player of the tournament.

Chris Coleman urges Ben Woodburn to follow Gareth Bale’s path to the top

• Wales coach says 17-year-old has mentality to succeed at highest level
• Cardiff match-winner told to carry on working hard to fulfil huge potential

Wales like to blood them young. Ben Woodburn was 17 years and 322 days old when he made his international debut in Cardiff on Saturday night. That made him two days older than Ryan Giggs, six days younger than Aaron Ramsey and a whole year older than Gareth Bale.

Woodburn was old enough and his match-winning goal was certainly good enough, the Liverpool man’s shot sizzling past Austria’s Heinz Lindner from 25 yards out five minutes after he had arrived on the pitch. It was a necessary intervention, allowing Chris Coleman’s side to force their way back into the reckoning for World Cup qualification. With three games left, they are four points off the top of Group D and two points off the play-off place occupied by the Republic of Ireland, with the Irish yet to come to Cardiff.

Wales have struggled with expectation after Euro 2016, says Chris Coleman

A year to the day after their Euro 2016 opener, Wales can ill afford defeat to group leaders Serbia if they are to reach the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia

Chris Coleman has always wanted Wales to focus on the future rather than basking in last summer’s success, yet with Sunday’s World Cup qualifier against Serbia taking place exactly a year after their opening match at Euro 2016, even the manager had to concede that it was impossible not to take a trip down memory lane.
