It was night of raw passion in Cardiff, and Wales responded with a performance that matched the mood. The Welsh resurgence under boss Mark Hughes hit new heights with his forward line of Ryan Giggs, Simon Davies, John Hartson and Craig Bellamy delivering the goods in front of an ecstatic 72,000 Millennium Stadium crowd. The pace, movement, strength and power of that foursome was the key to extending Wales' unbeaten record under hughes to seven games, dating back 13 months. The home side gave an energetic, free-flowing display crowned with two goals of individual brilliance from Davies and Bellamy - who unluckily had a further goal disallowed in the final minutes after the referee had blown for a foul against Italy!
This official commemorative region 2 DVD recounts every minute of the incredible game plus post match interviews as Mark Hughes's 11 heroes played the stuff of dreams. Some are even daring to suggest this team could eventually claim the crown of Wales’s greatest. Whatever happens, these players have written their names in Welsh football history. In 50 years' time they will still talk of the night in Cardiff when the great Italians were outclassed.
