Coleman uncertain on future

Chris Coleman insists he will make a decision over his future as Wales boss in November.

Coleman's future as Wales manager has been the subject of intense speculation after a disappointing World Cup qualifying campaign.

The former Fulham boss has yet to agree a contract extension with the Football Association of Wales, with suggestions claiming Tuesday's clash with Belgium could be his final game in charge.

However, Coleman does not expect anything to be resolved regarding his future until after next month's friendly with Finland when his current deal expires.

"Nothing's really changed there," Coleman told Sky Sports News of his contract situation.

"I wanted to get this game done and we have got Finland in November and that's when my contract ends and I think that will be the time where we will say yes or no and it will give me a little bit more time to reflect on everything."

Craig Bellamy will win his 78th and final cap for Wales against Belgium before retiring from international football, while the likes of 16-year-old Harry Wilson, Lloyd Isgrove and Rhoys Wiggins will all be hoping to get their first taste of playing for the senior Wales squad.

Coleman added: "He [Craig] has gone out on a high on his last home game, this a good game for him, a good game for everybody when you come up against the best teams and they are one of the best - I think they are ranked sixth in the world.

"We have Craig's last game and the younger ones like Harry Wilson and Isgrove, Rhoys Wiggins, who has just joined us from Charlton, getting their first taste of it so we are going from one end of the scale to the other."
