Wales v Netherlands Friendly Announced

Wales will play the Netherlands in a Vauxhall International Friendly Match at Cardiff City Stadium on Friday, 13th November.

The Football Association of Wales is pleased to announce a Vauxhall International Friendly Match at Cardiff City Stadium on Friday, 13 November against the Netherlands.

The friendly match, which will kick off at 7:45pm, will be the first match since Chris Coleman’s Wales team achieved qualification to UEFA EURO 2016.

The Netherlands failed to qualify for EURO 2016, finishing fourth in European Qualifying Group A, but will provide an excellent challenge for Wales at Cardiff City Stadium.

The teams last met in June 2014 at the Amsterdam Arena with the Netherlands winning 2-0, in what was their final preparation match before the FIFA World Cup.

The roles are reversed this time around as this match will signal the beginning of Welsh preparations for France next summer.

We produced an excellent display when we last met the Netherlands,” said Wales Manager Chris Coleman.

We look forward to welcoming the Dutch to Cardiff for what I’m sure will prove to be a valuable and entertaining match as we begin preparations for EURO 2016 in France.”
