Chris Coleman will be without talisman Gareth Bale tonight

A number of players and staff were in tears when Bale, who missed Monday's 1-0 defeat by Ireland in their final qualifier through injury, went to the dressing room and spoke to Coleman and there were further appeals at the team hotel.

Chris Coleman has been convinced to rethink standing down as Wales boss but remains tempted by a return to club football, The Independent understands.

"Chris is his own man and he'll eventually decide what is right for him and for Welsh football, " said Roberts, who has been at Coleman's side since he was appointed Wales manager in January 2012.

Welsh legend Ryan Giggs has been installed as the 4/1 favourite to replace Coleman should the long-serving boss leave his post, although it's unlikely the Welsh FA will want to gamble on someone with zero managerial experience.

'He's been a massive part of what we have done and he is the man to hopefully take us forward. "Everything was geared towards next summer".

Mexico have already qualified for the World Cup, while the United States still have a chance of qualifying automatically. "What he has done for the team and Welsh football has been awesome".

I'll take some time to let the dust settle and then I'm sure we'll have a sit down and have a chat and we'll take it from there".

Coleman said after Wales had reached the semifinals of Euro 2016 that the 2018 World Cup campaign would be his last in charge.

According to Sky, several Wales players are keen for Coleman to continue at the helm and guide them through the EURO 2020 qualifying rounds and through the tournament itself should they qualify. "He has said you're lucky if get you one opportunity in a lifetime to do it".

'The message from the whole squad would be that we want him to sign a new contract'.

Wales' first competitive defeat at home for four years means that the nation's long wait for another World Cup finals appearance goes on.

Welsh supporters would have woken up this morning wondering how they are not in a World Cup playoff.
