Robert Page insists relegation from the top tier of the Nations League on Sunday is softened by the prospect of looking forward to Wales’ first World Cup since 1958 in two months’ time. A 1-0 defeat to Poland in Cardiff on Sunday night condemned Page’s men to finishing bottom of a group also containing Belgium and the Netherlands. Wales’ four Nations League games in June were split either side of a vital World Cup qualifying play-off against Ukraine, which forced Page to rest a number of key players for their 2-1 defeat in Poland to start the group.
