The Cardiff City Stadium is set to host the international friendly between Wales and Norway this Saturday.  All of Wales’s big names: Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and Craig Bellamy, are included in their squad.

After two impressive Euro 2012 qualifying victories against Bulgaria and Switzerland last month, Gary Speed’s men will want to continue the fine form that has seen them catapult to number 45 in the FIFA world rankings.

Ed Jones, a Wales fan with tickets for the encounter is optimistic about where Welsh football is going.  He said, “Gary Speed has finally given the players belief and there’s pride in playing football for Wales again.  The youth that we’re bringing through is really encouraging and points towards a positive international future.”
