Wales v Cyprus odds : Chris Coleman’s side expected to win at home
“They’re not scared of it, they’ve accepted the compliment of being called the ‘golden generation’.
“That’s a huge compliment, I’ve told them they’ve got to earn it and they knew the pressure going into the game.
Coleman could be about to add name to that casualty list with Crystal Palace starlet Jonathan Williams struggling to be fit for the game. The 21 year old injured his calf on Friday night and will be assessed before the game.
Cyprus for their part have opened their campaign with a win and a defeat. Last month they got their group off to a wonderful start with a 2-1 win away to Bosnia-Herzegovina however that surprise result was soon consigned to memory as they crashed 2-1 at home to Israel.
The Welsh have met the Cypriots on five separate occasions, winning three and losing 2. The last time these met was in 2007 when Cyprus won 3-1 at home, a game that included both Gareth Bale and Joe Ledley, both expected to be on show on Monday.
The last time the two countries met in Cardiff, in 2006, Wales won 3-1, maintaining their 100% record on home soil.
