Prost at the World Cup!


As interest intensifies ahead of the World Cup, Prost has been busy following the preparations of Robert Page’s Wales squad and preparing for the wider tournament.

On behalf of Prost, I was lucky enough to attend last week’s press unveiling of the Wales squad in Tylorstown, deep in the South Wales valleys, where Page grew up. No huge surprises in the squad. Great to see a sprinkling of names from Cardiff City and Swansea City; that will keep the home fires burning for sure.
The weekend brought no new injury headaches for Page. Indeed, Kieffer Moore, Dan James and Ben Davies all pitched in with goal scoring Premier League performances. Danny Ward is in fine form for Leicester City in goal.
I will be out in Qatar for the group games, posting and tweeting in both Welsh and English via our bilingual identity.
Prost is proud to promote the Welsh language as a statement of cultural identity. Many Welsh language media colleagues are taking a close interest in our work. I was pleased to take part in an interview with Jason Mohammed on BBC Radio Wales this week and take the opportunity to promote our commitment to the Welsh language.
Next stop before Qatar was a final training session on Welsh soil for Page’s squad at the Cardiff City Stadium.
Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and the rest of the squad received a tremendous ovation from approximately 2,000 school children who were in attendance at the event along with youth mascot Mr Urdd, and Sage Todz, who performed live. The whole squad took part in the session, aside from Swansea City’s Joe Allen, who continues to nurse a hamstring injury. The midfield dynamo has not played since September.
We won’t just be covering Welsh games in Qatar though.
We are proud of our global reputation and our North American roots. I will be at games involving the USA, Brazil, Uruguay, Mexico and Canada as Prost brings you the top action from the top games! We will be covering Argentina too.
Could Wales meet Argentina? That could get Messi!
