"It's a marker for us to see how far we've come," said Wales manager Chris Coleman, whose side currently top Group B ahead of their visit to Belgium in their latest UEFA EURO 2016 qualifier.
"We're up against one of the best teams in the world and their record is very impressive. Winning a few games at the end of qualifying campaigns is not the same. At the start is when you've got to get your results and you've got to keep it going. I think my biggest game is yet to come and it will be in this campaign. This is a huge game, but we won't qualify if we win and we won't not quality if we lose. We know it's a huge step for us if we get a positive result."
Influential Arsenal FC midfielder Aaron Ramsey has expressed his excitement about returning to international duty with Wales having missed the last two UEFA EURO 2016 qualifiers against Bosnia and Herzegovina and Cyprus in Cardiff.
"I was gutted to have missed the last two games and not to have been part of those two great results," said Ramsey to the FAW website as the side prepare to take on Belgium in Brussels on Sunday. "We’ve put ourselves in a good position early on, something we haven’t done in a long time. Hopefully now we can push on and build on that."
