It was much derided when announced but UEFA's decision to expand the Euro 2016 championship to 24 teams has revitalized the qualifying competition with a host of countries daring to dream of making it to a major tournament, often for the first time.It is now nearly seven years since UEFA President Michel Platini announced the expansion of the finals from 16 teams, and faced heavy criticism that he had destroyed the "perfect format" and that by having 24, almost half of UEFA's members, the tournament would be devalued.The eight remaining third-placed teams will contest two-legged playoffs to determine the last four qualifiers.In the past great Welsh players such as Ian Rush and Ryan Giggs missed out on major finals as did current manager Chris Coleman, whose unbeaten side are second on goal difference to Belgium with 11 points at the top of Group B.
