Wales produce their most ridiculous team photo yet ahead of Georgia match

They've done it again...

Since becoming good at football in the last couple of years, the Welsh team have quite rightly gained plenty of attention.

Only a few months ago, Chris Coleman’s men were charming the pants off the entire football world as they made it to the semi-finals of Euro 2016 – their first major tournament in bloody ages. In fact, were it not for Iceland’s exploits, they’d have had a clean run at world football’s ‘everyone’s second favourite team’ tag.

But it’s not *just* their football that’s caught our attention in recent months. Their pre-match team photos have also become the stuff of legend.

It’s a simple idea: instead of adopting a traditional team line up formation of six on the back row, five crouching down at the front, like this one:


…they mess around with it, doing stuff like this…


… or this:

After doing it yet again for their 2-2 draw in Austria last week, they served up an even more ridiculous team photo before their meeting with Georgia in Cardiff on Sunday.

Just look at the state of this one:

Wales v Georgia - 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier

Three at the back, eight at the front. It’s simply unacceptable.

As for the game, Wales started brightly and took the lead through a Gareth Bale header. Georgia equalised in the second half as some guy whose name we can’t pronounce or spell right nodded home from close range.
