Under-pressure Wales manager Rob Page is in desperate need of a win in his side's upcoming game against Latvia to rejuvenate his country's hopes of qualifying for Euro 2024.

The Dragons are aiming to qualify for the European Championships for the third time in their history and they are determined to bounce back from defeats against Turkey and Armenia in June.

Page has faced a lot of media scrutiny for his side's recent run of form, which has seen Wales win just one their last 13 games in all competitions - the most recent of those was a 1-0 win at home to Latvia back in March.

Wales' decline in form since qualifying for the World Cup last year has been a major cause of concern and the team is now entering a tough transitional period without starman Gareth Bale, who retired from football.

Page commented on speculation surrounding his future and said: “I can’t let that (pressure) affect me. I can’t think about that. I’ve got a job to do. I want to be in this job for the rest of my contract, I really enjoy working with this group of players. 

“We are in an industry where you need to win games of football. We are in a period of transition as well. I can’t influence what the board of people above do. All I can worry about is winning games of football and giving it my best shot.”

The upcoming contest in Riga is likely to have huge implications on Wales’ qualification hopes as they look to close the gap on Croatia, Turkey and Armenia at the top of Group D.

But when is Wales vs Latvia and how can fans keep up to date with all of the action? Here’s all you need to know.
