Wales vs Trinidad and Tobago
International – Friendly
Date: Wednesday, 20th March 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Racecourse Ground (Wrexham).
We may be in line for a Gareth Bale show this Wednesday. The Welshman has had it tough this ongoing season. He finally had the chance to single-handedly carry the Madrid team after Cristiano Ronaldo left. But ever since his two wonder-goals in the Champions League final, he has failed to live up to the challenge. All that frustration just might be taken out on the poor visiting Trinidad team.
Moreover, it’s been some time since Wales put on a great show for the fans. They had some good moments in the Nations League, but it amounted to nothing as the team failed to gain promotion.
For Trinidad and Tobago, this game is mostly to gain experience, and to test waters against a major team in Europe. They are placed 93rd in the FIFA Rankings, and it’s been three years since they recorded a win on the road.

Wales vs Trinidad and Tobago Prediction
Wales is about to enter into the Euro Qualifiers, and they definitely would want it to begin on a high. The last edition of the Euros saw the team being denied a spot in the final by eventual winners Portugal. But since then Wales has not had a good time in the international scenario. Also, England has been overshadowing the team for much too long. It’s time to put a stop to that.
Trinidad lost ten of their last fourteen games and their last seven in a row away from home. In addition, the team was winless in 16 of their last 17 away ties, and a worrying 15 of them were losses. Moreover, Wales found the back of the net in 13 of their last 15 home ties, whereas Tobago registered just three goals in total, in their last seven games on the road.
The huge gap in FIFA Rankings itself is a major indicator as to which team will come out the winner. While Wales is placed 19th in the list, their opposite number is a distant 93rd.
Finally, with the inclusion of angry and focussed Gareth Bale, Wales has an extra edge, and a point to prove. It ironical that Trinidad comes into this match for experience, and for sure they are going to experience some heavy stuff during the ninety minutes.
