England take on Wales

This weekend see's the return of the Euro 2012 qualification campaign. England's next match on the route to the Euro's is at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium, home of the Welsh National Team.
If ya could get local derbies on a national scale, this would defiantly be one of those.

Newly appointed Welsh manager Gary Speed is the man in charge of taking Wales through a slight transition period with a few new stars on the horizon. Tottenham midfielder Gareth Bale burst on to the scene this year when Harry Redknapp played the once full back in a more forward position. The new left winger role has seen Spurs look deadly on the counter and has put them in the latter stages of the Champions League. Speed also has Arsenal youngster Aaron Ramsey back in contention after a long injury. Ramsey has featured in Arsenals last few games in the premier league and hopes to be available to start against England.

Fabio Capello has announced this week that John Terry will be reinstated as long term England captain. This was after Terry had been stripped of the England Captaincy after allegations of cheating with a partner of a fellow England team mate. Rio Ferdinand had been named captain after the incident however a year on Capello sees fit to give the armband back to JT. Jack Wilshere has also been called up for his first cap in a qualification match.

Wives/Girlfriends take note! Your only allowed to be mad for a year!
