WALES fans are set to deliver under-fire boss Robert Page a vote of no confidence with their lowest home crowd in FOUR years for Thursday’s friendly against South Korea.
Page’s side have won just one of their 12 internationals – a 1-0 home win over Latvia in March – and lie in fourth spot of their Euro 2024 qualification group.
The previous lowest crowd in recent times – Covid matches aside – was the sparse 7,666 attendance for a 1-0 friendly win over Belarus in September 2019 when Ryan Giggs was manager.
SunSport understands a similar level of support is expected in Cardiff.
Tottenham captain Son Heung-min leads South Korea for the friendly clash in the Welsh capital.
The Football Association of Wales had only sold 7,000 tickets last week.
And that means the 33,280-capacity Cardiff City Stadium is likely to be less than a third full at best with empty seats across the ground.
A section of Wales fans want Page to be sacked following a dismal set of results which included a humiliating 4-2 home qualifying loss to Armenia in front of a sell-out crowd in June.
That was followed up by a 2-0 defeat in Group D leaders Turkey.
They are already five points clear of the Welsh with Armenia and Croatia also above them in the race for Germany although they have played fewer games.
But, despite the horror run of form, Page, 48, has received the backing from FAW chief executive Noel Mooney.
Wales must-win against bottom side Latvia when they travel to Riga next Monday if they want to keep their slim hopes of automatic qualification for next summer’s finals alive.
Only the top two qualify from the group.
However, Page’s men could be handed a route through the back door via the play-offs next year because of their previous Nations League success.
But a failure to collect those all-important three points against the Latvians will only increase the mounting pressure on Page, who signed a four-year deal 12 months ago before the World Cup.
