Russia appeal
The FAW has filed an Appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) against the written judgement of the UEFA Appeals Body, following the UEFA hearing on 19th March 2004.

"Throughout this matter, the FAW has always maintained that it would pursue all available remedies in an effort to obtain a just outcome. The FAW feels that the UEFA Appeals Body did not give sufficient weight to the powerful arguments, which the FAW submitted at the Hearing and erred in not letting the nominated expert scientific witnesses give evidence in person at the Hearing. The FAW has therefore lodged an Appeal with CAS, which has been acknowledged. UEFA's response to the Appeal to CAS is awaited.” - David Collins, the Secretary General

Player ruling
The Football Association of Wales look set to invoke FIFA regulations ahead of the final World Cup warm up match against Latvia in August.

Under current rules the FAW can enforce players selected in the squad to join up 48 hours before a friendly international, and four days before a qualification match. This rule can be used even if the player is injured.

“We have the FIFA regulations on our side and will use them if we need to.” – Mark Evans – International secretary.
