The Football Association of Wales have confirmed a decision will be made in 24 hours on whether Wales' opening Euro 2016 qualifier with Andorra can go ahead at the new national stadium.

UEFA will carry out further tests on Andorra's 3G artificial surface today before making a decision on where the game will be played.

If improvements have not been made after the last inspection on the weekend then the game could be moved to a different country with Spain thought to be an option.

Andorra have been playing their homes at the Estadi Comunal d'Andorra la Vella.

An FAW spokesperson has thanked fans travelling to Andorra for their patience.

UEFA Euro 2016: Wales squad to face Andorra named

The Wales squad has been announced for the forthcoming UEFA Euro 2016 qualifier against Andorra.

Coleman to announce Euro 2016 qualifier squad

Wales manager Chris Coleman believes the 'holy grail' of qualifying for a major tournament is within reach if he can play his best team in the Euro 2016 qualifiers.

The campaign starts in Andorra on 9th September, but it is the games against group favourites Belgium and Bosnia-Herzegovina as well as Israel and Cyprus which will determine whether Wales make it to France in 2016

Wales haven't qualified for a major final since the World Cup of 1958.

But, there is real hope this time that Coleman can turn that around by guiding a talented group of players to an expanded 24-team championship.

We're going into it with enthusiasm. Expectations are always high and it's all to play for. The holy grail for us is to qualify and we've got a chance to do that over 10 games with a little bit of luck. That's the objective.

– Chris Coleman, Wales manager

Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale heads the list but Coleman can also call on the likes of Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey, Liverpool's Joe Allen and Swansea skipper Ashley Williams.

The squad will be announced later today.
