    Wales defeat in Latvia - Now what?



    Wales Defeat Latvia: Now What?
    The recent match between Wales and Latvia was considered a must-win for boss Robert Page. As captain Aaron Ramsey and winger David Brooks both scored and changed the future of the match, it seems like Wales's Euro 2024 qualification hopes can still be kept alive. But what will happen next for The Dragons?
    In this article, we dive into the future of Welsh football, and what must happen for the team to qualify for Euro 2024, Group D. The pending results will influence football betting odds going forward, too. From Premier League winner odds to European Championship winner odds, punters will keep tabs on the changing lines, all the while hoping Wales makes it through. Keep reading to find out more about one of the most exciting moments in Welsh football.

    Wales Versus Latvia
    Aaron Ramsey scored his 100th career goal when his team needed it the most in Riga. Automatic Euro qualification seemed like a faraway dream up to that moment, with a lot of pressure being put on manager Rob Page’s shoulders.
    Ramsey scored his goal from the penalty spot, and as well as that, David Brooks scored a well-taken goal deep into stoppage time. This was all it took for Wales to come away with a 2-0 win, moving the team to level points with Armenia, battling for second place.
    But aside from the final score, what happened in Riga? Well, experts talk about two prevalent narratives surrounding the match. First of all, it was important for followers and players alike to find out whether or not their automatic qualification would still be an option at the end of those crucial 90 minutes. Secondly, was Page’s manager position at stake if Wales suffered an unfavourable result?

    Wales Before the Big Win
    The pressure has been on Page for quite some time now, as many can remember from the World Cup play-off win over Ukraine last year. Right before that famous game in Riga, Wales had only won one of their last 13 matches and two of their last 16.
    It is widely known that Wales has a stable following of fans who are used to success and the team's presence in major tournaments. People started complaining about the management and results of the team.
    What Wales (and Page) needed was a big performance against Group D’s lowest-ranked side; in other words, they needed a change of luck. They could hope to win against a team who ranked almost 100th in the world rankings behind Wales, but a win is a win, and that would have shown fans that there was still some hope for their favourite team.

    What Needs to Happen Next?
    While Wales beat Latvia, Croatia prevailed 1-0 against Armenia. This means that Croatia and Wales are the next Euro opponents in Cardiff next month. The result will most likely seal the future of manager Rob Page, who is trying his best to prepare the team for the important match.

    His career wasn’t always so precarious, though, as the 49-year-old man was essentially considered a national hero after having managed to lead Wales to their first World Cup in 64 years. But the current state of things is not as bright. Poor performances and the current campaign have turned more than one head, and the fan base is calling for some managerial change.

    In the space of a month, we will know more about the future of Wales and Rob Page, but for the moment, we can consider Thursday’s friendly with South Korea as a light encouragement for a brighter future for him and his beloved team. While fans wait to see what will happen next, they continue to hold their breath for Wales and hope for the best.
