The game, at the Stade de France, will be only the second time the nations have met. The last time they did was back in 1982 in Toulouse where an Ian Rush goal gave Wales a 1-0 victory.

Wales will head to Paris still uncertain over the future of manager Chris Coleman who told ITV News that he is considering his future in the job following Wales’ failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Coleman’s current contract runs out in November with no new deal yet to be agreed. It is however understood that both the FAW and Wales players are keen to keep Coleman in the job.
