Chris Coleman "excited" for Mexico friendly

Chris Coleman says that managing his country is something that he has always dreamed of.

Wales boss Chris Coleman has described managing his country as a dream come true.

The 41-year-old will take charge of his first game against Mexico in New York on Sunday and said that he is itching to get started.

"I'm very excited about leading Wales and I just want to get started," BBC Sport quotes Coleman as saying. "Managing my country was something I always dreamed of doing since I became a manager.

"It's a new experience and I'm keen to learn. The game can't come around quick enough.

"As an international manager, there are a lot of off-the-field things that you need to do, but being with the squad and preparing the players for match-day is the most enjoyable bit."

The former Fulham manager took over the national team duties in January following the death of Gary Speed.
