Wales appoints Flynn as caretaker coach

BY foxsports • September 13, 2010

Brian Flynn has been hired as Wales caretaker coach for the team's two European Championship qualifiers next month following the resignation of John Toshack.

Flynn, who is currently Wales youth-team coach, will take charge of the senior side's matches against Bulgaria in Cardiff on Oct. 8 and Switzerland in Basel four days later.

Toshack quit last Thursday, less than a week after Wales opened its Euro 2012 qualifying campaign with a 1-0 loss in Montenegro. The former Liverpool striker had been in the post since 2004.

Flynn, who is reported to be one of the favorites to replace Toshack on a permanent basis, says ''I shall give it my all to try and achieve results and stake a claim for the job.''
