FOOTBALL: New Wales Speed Record; ITALY V WALES, SAN SIRO,MILAN,TONIGHT, 7.45PM


Byline: MARK CURRIE

CAPTAIN Gary Speed will equal the record number of Wales caps for an outfield player when he leads out his team-mates in the San Siro stadium this evening.

But he conceded that the current campaign, which sees Wales at the top of Group Nine, two points ahead of the Italians, represents his last chance of playing in the final stages of a European Championship,although he has not yet ruled out another crack at the World Cup.

``This is certainly my last chance as far as the Europeans are concerned, but that's as far as it goes for the moment.

``When and if my body tells me I've had enough,I'll consider what to do but I'm certainly not going to be making any decisions like that ahead of this game tomorrow. …
