FANS: Press conference LIVE

FAWLIVE
Gary Speed and Aaron Ramsey answer Euro 2012 questions live online.

Live streamed press conference featuring Welsh Manager and Captain.

  Show date: Thursday October 6th 
  Show time: 13.30 
 
The Welsh national football team face a busy few days in the latest round of Euro 2012 qualifiers with a home game against Switzerland on 7 October and a trip to Sofia to play Bulgaria four days later.

Following the recent away win against Montenegro and the narrow defeat to England hopes are rising that Welsh fortunes are on the rise.

Manager Gary Speed is expected to field a strong side against a Swiss team who are still in the hunt to qualify for the finals in Poland and Ukraine, knowing that a win in Swansea and victory over Montenegro in the final match will secure second place in the group and a place in the play-offs.
