Wales getting close to Belgium's level - Osian Roberts

Osian Roberts says Wales can compete with teams as good as Belgium

Wales are not far from the level of countries like Belgium, believes assistant manager Osian Roberts.

Belgium recovered to beat Algeria 2-1 in the World Cup on Tuesday.

Wales meet Belgium in the Euro 2016 qualifiers in November and Roberts said Algeria showed that the Belgians can be vulnerable.

"When the time comes, we'll be ready. I think we showed in the last campaign that we are there or thereabouts," said Roberts.

He said Belgium struggled in the first half against the Algerians, but have quality players throughout their squad and expects them to be better against more established sides.

"When we went to Belgium [in the World Cup qualifiers] we had 15 players unavailable and managed to get a fantastic 1-1 draw, so it shows that we're not far away from teams like Belgium," added Roberts.
