The post Gareth Bale, Senior Players Urge Wales Coach Chris Coleman To Stay appeared first on 360Nobs.com.
Wales are planning a home friendly in November, with Mexico and the United States among their potential opponents.
"It was great to have him and Jon Walters here because they are both big players for us".
"But we will take a little bit of time to gather our thoughts because [going out of the World Cup] was the furthest thing from our mind".
"It's not the end of Welsh football, we've got something we can use going forward". After Chris Coleman guided his side to European Championship semi-finals in 2016, World Cup qualification would have been expected but now they will have to deal with a number of friendlies over the coming months against sides who have already secured their ticket to Russian Federation in 2018.
The failure has, of course, led to reports that Coleman could be set to end his tenure as manager, but he isn't in any rush to talk to the FA.
Even in their World Cup campaign, Wales only lost one match in the qualifying rounds - poignantly it was the one they really to win following a run of draws against four of their Group D rivals.

However, on the road against Trinidad and Tobago in soggy conditions, things could get tricky. The current US squad will not confront the same challenges in Port-of-Spain.
Bale, 28, said: "He couldn't have taken on the job at a more hard time and what we've collectively achieved since then has been unbelievable".
"He has said you're lucky if get you one opportunity in a lifetime to do it".
"The gaffer has been great for us and I've loved every second of working with him and we'll see what happens".
"Whatever decision he makes it's going to be a very hard one, but this is the dream job managing your country. When the dust settles we'll see where we go", he added.
Ireland's dream of a trip to Russian Federation next Summer is still alive following their 1-0 win over Wales on Monday night in their final match in Group D of the qualifiers.
Welsh supporters would have woken up this morning wondering how they are not in a World Cup playoff.
"The whole nation will be mourning and disappointed because, again, that elusive World Cup has passed us by".
