Wales' qualifying campaign for the 2014 FIFA World Cup begins this evening.
The team, who have only ever qualified once for a major international tournament, will face Belgium at Cardiff City Stadium.
Manager Chris Coleman has already admitted it will be a 'tough game' but said he remains optimistic - despite last month's disappointing defeat in his side's warm-up fixture with Bosnia-Herzegovina.
He told a press conference: "We can't wait until we're a goal down before we start getting angry and start doing a little bit more. We've got to start like that.
"When you're playing against good teams, you have to be brave. And if you're brave - not stupid, but brave - you've always got a chance.
"We know we've got to be better than we were against Bosnia. We can be better, and we will be better."
