Chris Coleman insists it is "business as usual" for Wales in Paris on Friday even though his own future remains uncertain.
Coleman is expected to commit to a new two-year contract after Wales' friendlies against France and Panama in the next five days.
But as it stands, these two games could mark the end of Coleman's near six-year tenure with his current deal running out at the end of the month.
Ahead of the clash, Coleman admits he does not want World Cup heartbreak to be his lasting Wales memory.
They missed out on qualification for the competition after a loss against the Republic of Ireland.
He said, ''I've had disappointments before, but that was more embarrassment. This was different. We were trying to achieve something special and we fell at the last hurdle. Do i want that as my lasting memory of a campaign? I dont think it is to be honest.''
Wales begin their post-World Cup rehabilitation against France in Paris on Friday. Gareth Bale remains sidelined with a calf injury.
