Flynn Calls For Matthews & All-Out Attack

Wales Caretaker Manager Brian Flynn is relying on the attacking intent of his team to secure results against Bulgaria in Cardiff tonight and Switzerland away on Tuesday.

After the Euro 2012 qualifying campaign opened with a defeat in Montenegro, Flynn knows that anything less than victory tonight will damage Wales’ hopes of qualifying for a first major international tournament since 1958.

“It is a must-win game,” said Flynn ahead of the Cardiff City Stadium game. “We have to do it… the team is set up to score goals.”

“I said to the players, especially the forward players, they have got licence to thrill, to go and excite everybody.”

“Our theme has been ‘no fear, no doubts, no hesitations’ and preparation has been fantastic.”

“The emphasis will be on attack – we are at home, we need to win the game. The onus is on us to do that and I have set up the team to do that.”

Meanwhile Brian Flynn has drafted in Cardiff City full-back Adam Matthews as cover and he joins team-mate Darcy Blake, who was called up on Monday.

Matthews, who came through the Bluebirds ASE programme has been capped once at Under-21 level but is still waiting for his bow on the senior stage having previously been called up for last November’s friendly against Scotland where he failed to make it off the bench.
