Wales v Belgium: Roberts ready to take Euro 2016 rivals down

By Jamie Thomas.

Wales’ assistant manager Osian Roberts admits Belgium are in their best ever form – but he still believes they can exploit any weaknesses.


Chris Coleman’s No2 is confident ahead of Friday’s top-of-the-table Group B clash after doing his homework on the Red Devils with a trip to Paris on Sunday to witness the Marouane Fellaini-inspired 4-3 victory.

While Roberts was full of praise for the newly-crowned second best team in the world – who have risen nine places from 11th to their highest ever position in the Fifa rankings – he insists Wales are capable of causing an upset after November’s shut-out.
