Williams Handed Start Against Liechtenstein

Williams Handed Start Against  Liechtenstein

Ashley Williams has been handed a starting spot in this evenings World Cup Qualification game against Liechtenstein at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

Williams has featured in every single Welsh international since hid d├ębut back in March against Luxembourg but the defenders transition to the international game has not gone without incident. Keen to atone for his mistake that cost the Dragons a vital point against Russia, Williams told the Western Mail "I watched the game again when I got back home and another half an inch and that ball would have been cleared. I thought I was a bit unfortunate because I was on my heels going backwards and had to change direction quickly to get something on it - when I did it just went straight to the striker.I`ve been looking forward to getting back with Wales for these games to try and put things right as a team by getting some more points on board."

Wales got their qualification campaign off to a rocky start with a 83rd minute strike by Wolverhampton Wanders striker Sam Vokes sparing Welsh blushes over a well organized Azerbaijan side.There is no place on the bench for Swansea City midfielder Owain Tudur Jones.

Ranked 135th in the world Liechtenstein under the helm of Swiss manager Hans-Peter Zaugg will be out to upset all the odds and come away with all the spoils from Cardiff after failing to capitalize on their chances in the 0-0 draw against Azerbaijan and will be hoping to avoid a 6-0 drumming sustained against a world class Germany side. Key to Liechtenstein chances will be the vastly experienced AS Siena striker Mario Frick and Darlington midfielder Franz Burgmeier.
