Wales will be looking to continue their good run of form this evening when they travel to Bulgaria in their final Euro 2012 qualification match.
Last time out Wales were perhaps not at their best, but Gary Speed’s men came out on top with a 2-0 win at home to Switzerland.

Ahead of Friday’s match the Swiss were still in with a chance of qualifying, but defeat in Swansea has ruined any chances they had, so credit has to go to Wales for the three points.
Going into this last game, Wales know that if they avoid defeat this evening against Bulgaria they ensure they won’t finish bottom of Group G.
When Bulgaria visited Cardiff last October the home side were put to the sword and suffered defeat, giving new coach Lothar Matthaus a 100% start to his international management career.
In a game that saw Wales on the back foot for the majority, Speed will be hoping his team can show they have much more quality and flare than their opponents on this occasion.
A year on and with a stand-in coach, Mihail Madanski, Bulgaria will be hoping to impress and avoid finishing bottom of the group.
Wales have a disastrous record against the Eastern Europeans having not witnessed a win against Bulgaria since they first met in 1983.
There have been four competitive meetings since then, which have all ended in disappointment for the Welsh. Going to Bulgaria is going to be quite a daunting experience too, with the home fans likely to create a rather hostile atmosphere.
Wales have a full squad available giving Speed plenty of options for this one. It is likely that there will be little change, if any to the team who played in Fridays home win.
Another positive for Wales is that Bulgaria’s defence is rather fragile having shipped eight goals in their last four matches scoring just twice.
Should Wales win this one to continue their revival, it is still possible for them to finish a surprising 3rd in Group G.
This would not only improve morale but it would also help with the FIFA rankings, something which caused plenty of disappointment earlier this year.
