What has Helped the Unity in the Welsh Dressing Room?
Wales have got the furthest they have done in World Cup qualifying since 1958. After making it through to the final of the play-offs, it’s been a successful campaign for the Dragons so far. There are a lot of reasons why this might be the case, but one of the biggest plus points, is the overall unity of the squad. We have taken a closer look at what could be helping this.
Having fun when travelling and after training, is vital to maintaining positive team spirit. This is why playing friendly Poker games is likely to be something that the squad has been taking part in. It allows the players to compete against each other in a friendly environment, while also offering the ability to develop an analytical mind. For example, knowing how to develop your Poker skills is an important aspect of your Poker playing strategy. By improving this part of their brain, it allows players to absorb complicated tactics much more easily.
Working Towards a Common Goal
After learning that they will be playing either Scotland or Ukraine in the final of the World Cup play offs, it is easy to see why Wales are feeling confident. On paper they should be able to beat either of these teams. While of course it doesn’t always go that way, the Welsh players will be going into this game with a lot of confidence.
With a place at the World Cup up for grabs, it makes sense that the Welsh players will be up for this. It is also obvious why they are so dedicated to working together and getting to play on the biggest stage in the international game. With Wales waiting more than 50 years to make an appearance at a World Cup, it’s obvious why this is such a big game to the Welsh squad.
A player of this level always helps to bring together dressing rooms. Portugal with Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentina with Diego Maradona, are great examples of a talisman bringing out the best of the players around them. Bale does the same with the Wales squad.
His quality helps bring out the best in the Welsh team, and it also helps to bring together the dressing room. With a player of Bale’s calibre at their disposal, it makes sure that the players are all on the same page. This means that the Welsh camp is more united than it has been in years. Overall, this bodes very well for the play-off final and Wales’ prospects once the World Cup gets underway.
