'British Derby'? Chris Coleman Puts Foot In It Before Ireland V Wales

'British Derby'? Chris Coleman Puts Foot In It Before Ireland V Wales

Chris Coleman has been fairly careful with his words in the lead-up to Republic of Ireland v Wales. He refused to bite over John Giles saying that Gareth Bale wasn't a "great player" just yet and has generally toed the party line. But he has made one huge blunder as we approach kick-off.

Coleman referred to the game as a "British derby" in a pre-game interview on Sky Sports. That's one sure-fire way to fire up the home faithful!
