Coleman hints at new deal

Chris Coleman said after watching his Wales side draw 1-1 with Panama in a friendly international that he wants to remain in charge of the national side.

Coleman's current contract is due to expire at the end of this month and it had been suggested that he would leave the role after failing to guide Wales to the 2018 World Cup.

However, the 47-year-old is set to hold talks about his future and hinted after Tuesday's draw that he was willing to extend his contract.

Coleman, who led Wales to the semi-finals of Euro 2016, said after the Panama match: "I think I am the man to lead them, yeah, but there's a bit more to it than that.

"That will happen very shortly, very quick. I have never lost the desire to represent Wales."

Tom Lawrence had given Wales the lead only for Armando Cooper to grab an equaliser for Panama, who have qualified for the World Cup, with virtually the last kick of the match.

Coleman added: "We got loads of experience into the young players, that's important.

"We give Panama credit, we found it hard to break them down. A huge thank you to our fans who came tonight, they are our hard core."

Meanwhile, River Plate are 1212/1 to win the 2017 Copa Libertadores and Gremio can be backed at 4/11.
