Wales manager Chris Coleman has contract extended

 Football News 24/7
 Chris Coleman's contract as Wales manager has been extended until after the 2018 World Cup.

The 45-year-old has been rewarded with a two-year extension by the Football Association of Wales for guiding his country to Euro 2016, Wales' first finals since the 1958 World Cup.

His previous deal was due to end after this summer's tournament in France.

"We need to build on what we have achieved and I'm looking forward to the challenge," Coleman said.

"It is a big challenge, but one I think we can conquer. I'm honoured to be in charge of Wales for two more years."

Coleman became Wales boss in January 2012 when he replaced the late Gary Speed.
