ONE thing that has always been consistent with our national team is that we never make it easy for ourselves or for our supporters. And nothing has changed in this Euro 2020 campaign either.

This is the business end, this is when it matters, this is crunch time. The teams that deal with these occasions best, that stay focused on the goal ahead of them, are the ones who cross the line and deliver. It is not a given that the teams with the most quality players go through.

Can Ryan Giggs and his merry men pull this off? Three weeks ago, I thought no; Joe Allen out, fourth in the group and the uncertainty of Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale being there. But my doubts are now gone.

All of the boys are chomping at the bit and if one player can pull us through through, it’s Aaron Ramsey. It would be his first appearance of the qualifying campaign and he will want to leave his mark.

It’s no coincidence that as Joe misses out, Aaron comes back in – it’s written in the stars. We will win in Azerbaijan by two goals to nil – maybe even three. It won’t be the prettiest game of football, but at this stage, all that matters are the results.

Big man Kieffer Moore will lead the line up front and once again we must hit the ball long to him, like we did in Slovakia. The Azerbaijan defence won’t know what’s hit them. We’ll need to pick up those second balls in their half, and we’ll have Dan James and Gareth Bale on the flanks ready to fly.

I feel that if Giggs needs to make a change to the system, it should be to have one midfielder sitting in front of the back four - not two. And that man will be Ethan Ampadu.

We’ll have big Ashley Williams in the back four again, in the place of the injured Joe Rodon, and his presence and experience in pressure games will be invaluable to the team.

A win in Baku would bring us back to Cardiff in buoyant mood for when we host Hungary on Tuesday night. What a night that could be – one that would stay with us for the rest of our lives. With the Red Wall urging the team on, I think we’ll win it by the odd goal – 2-1 for me.

I’m such a lucky man to do what I do and I’m very fortunate that I could be part of footballing history again next week, live on S4C, when Wales qualify. C’MON CYMRU!!!

Dean Keates went into the game against table-toppers Bromley with nothing to lose.

With Wrexham in the bottom four, there was no pressure on anyone to win the game – but they found a way to win and hopefully it’s the springboard they need in their survival fight.

And it’s going to be a battle, believe me, but I remember Dean Keates as a player who relished rolling up his sleeves, so I have no worries that Wrexham will soon start climbing the table, guarantee safety and start building for the future.

I think a good run in the Scottish Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Cup would give them a big boost and they could well be the first team from outside of Scotland to win the cup.

Another manager who could well have had the Wrexham job, Andy Morrison, is doing very well again with Connah’s Quay Nomads, who haven’t lost a game in the Cymru Premier this season.

The Dragons had their opportunity to snap him up, but he was never approached.

His stock is rising and rising and Wrexham’s loss may well be another club’s gain.

The Nomads are top of the table and are the only unbeaten team in the league.

But we all remember what happened after they showed so much promise last season.

Getting into Europe will be Andy’s number one target – anything after that will be a bonus.
