BBC Sport - Euro 2016 countdown: Chris Coleman makes final Wales appearance after car crash

Coleman's Wales playing farewell

As Wales manager Chris Coleman leads Wales into Euro 2016 - the nation's first major tournament finals since 1958 - we remember when he made his final appearance in a Wales shirt on his comeback from a serious car crash.

Coleman came on for the final 50 seconds of Wales' 1-0 win over Germany to great applause at an emotional Millennium Stadium in May 2002.

The then Fulham defender had won his way back into the Wales squad 16 months after a serious car crash threatened to end his playing career as he suffered severe leg injuries.

The last of Coleman's 32 Wales caps ended on a high as striker Robert Earnshaw sealed an historic win.
