Chris Coleman awarded OBE in New Year's Honours List

Wales boss Chris Coleman has been honoured by the Queen after an incredible summer for the Wales football team which saw them reach the semi-finals of the European Championships.

 

Coleman has been made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) and joins stars including Welsh opera singer Bryn Terfel, Victoria Beckham and Olympic heroes Mo Farah and Andy Murray in the New Year Honours list.

 

The Wales manager, from Swansea, has been honoured for services to football. He shot to nationwide adoration last summer when Wales stormed through Euro 2016 and is now set on trying to lead Wales to Russia 2018.

 

Victories over Slovakia and Russia helped Coleman's side top their group on France and helped set up a last 16 tie with Northern Ireland. After overcoming Michael O'Neill's side, Wales then defeated much-fancied Belgium in the last eight, with Hal Robson-Kanu scoring a memorable goal in a stunning 3-1 victory.

 

Wales were eventually halted by eventual winners Portugal in the semi-finals but the achievements of Chris Coleman and his team will live long in the memory for Wales supporters.
