ales begin their World Cup countdown with a trip to Belgium for a UEFA Nations League double-header that also includes the visit of Poland to Cardiff.
Rob Page is gearing up to lead his country to their first World Cup since 1958 and, naturally, all of the focus will be on Qatar.
Still, the fact Wales sit bottom of their group will be a concern. While Welsh football has largely been one big success story in recent years, relegation from Group A4 would be hugely disappointing.
For Belgium, this World Cup seems like one too far for their much-heralded golden generation in terms of genuine expectations to win it. They do, however, still boast a huge amount of quality.
