Cookie figures for Wales

Wednesday 15 May 2002

Chris Coleman made his return to international action on Tuesday night, appearing as a late substitute as the Welsh beat Germany 1-0.

A second half goal from Robert Earnshaw saw Wales pull off the superb win. With the match in its closing stages Coleman replaced Earnshaw to rapturous applause from the Millennium Stadium crowd.

With Coleman still on the road to recovery, his appearance would have served as further motivation for his close-season rehabilitation efforts.
