A few weeks ago condescending Englishmen and the like were laughing and joking about how the Wales national football team was 117th in the world, our lowest ever FIFA World Ranking, and making us officially worse than Sudan, the Faroe Islands, Haiti, Gambia and the Central African Republic.

Now we can gloat – up to 45th, into the top 50 for the first time in 8 years, and now officially better than Cameroon, the Czech Republic, Ecuador, Romania, Euro 2012 co-hosts Ukraine and Poland, and most importantly, all the Home Nations…well, bar England. We have risen 72 places in 2 months.

As the man brave enough to defend my nation’s football team in its darkest hour, I take great pride in telling you all that I told you we were good. And of course, with such a young team, this is only the start…
