Wales fired head coach Rob Page after failing to qualify for Euro 2024

Wales has parted relations with its head coach, Rob Page, after failing to qualify for the 2024 European Championship in Germany.
Rob Page has been Wales’ head coach for three and a half years now. The finest result he helped them achieve was qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, their first appearance in the event in 64 years. He also led his country to a second-round finish at Euro 2020.

After that, the 49-year-old tactician was unable to help his country qualify for the upcoming Euro 2024.

The Football Association of Wales (FAW) fired the coach after he led the team to a 0-0 tie with Gibraltar on June 6 and a 4-0 loss to Slovakia on June 9, 2024.
Following that, the FA and coach Rob Page met for more than a week before agreeing to part ways.

Page was previously anticipated to captain Wales in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, despite criticism from Welsh supporters. However, that ambition has been cut short with immediate effect.

The FAW’s chief football officer, Dave Adams, said: “I would like to thank Rob for his work with the association over the last seven years, first as the under-21s head coach and then as Cymru [Wales] head coach.”

FAW CEO Noel Mooney added: “On behalf of myself and the entire FAW, I express my heartfelt gratitude to Rob for his devotion and dedication to his tasks for the national teams.

“Under Rob Page’s leadership, our Cymru men’s team has achieved significant milestones and victories which have created many incredible memories for our nation, most notably our first World Cup in 64 years.”
