Speed confident ahead of England test

Gary Speed believes his Wales team can compete well with England this week.

Speed’s side take on Fabio Capello’s men on Tuesday night in Euro 2012 qualifying action.

“It’s going to be difficult,” he said. “But if we can perform as we did the other night and keep our shape defensively, we can give the Welsh fans something to sing about.

“There’s no fear, we’re looking forward to it. England have got fantastic players, we know it’s going to be tough but what a great opportunity. We’re just concerned about ourselves. England are by far the best team in the group and will qualify comfortably, but hopefully for our sake it won’t be tomorrow night.”
