"I had a good time there".

Unsurprisingly, the 46-year-old has been linked with a number of posts since his exploits in France last summer and he turned down the chance to manage Hull City and Swansea City earlier this season.

"All I'm thinking about is Serbia". I only care about preparing Wales properly.

"It would look cowardly because we're going back to Serbia where I got my backside spanked".

"It's about making sure we perform like we have been doing".

"I'm looking forward to this game, that's where my mind and my thinking is".

Wales manager Coleman said: "He doesn't want to play worldwide football, which is a disappointment from our point of view". Coleman reiterated that he would sit down with his Football Association of Wales employers if his team were eliminated in the race for World Cup qualification.

OPEC crude production rises in April - IEA
The price for July futures of Brent crude oil has increased by 2.44 percent to $52.08 per barrel as of 09:23 (GMT +4). OPEC members agreed in November to cut 1.2 million barrels a day of oil production.

Wales are third in Group D, four points adrift of second-placed Republic of Ireland and first-placed Serbia, who are level on 11 points.

The party will be trimmed to 23 before Wales head out to Serbia, and Coleman is determined to make up for the lowest point of his five-year reign - the 6-1 defeat to the same opponents in September 2012.

"I am not ready to say to the FAW and Wales and to my players "thanks for that".

Gareth Bale and Neil Taylor are omitted due to being suspended for the clash, but Coleman has no injury worries as he takes the players through their paces prior to naming the squad that will take on Serbia.

"We dealt with that disappointment a while ago now - we once went to Belgium without Gareth Bale and got a great result with Aaron Ramsey running the show".

Woodburn is joined in the squad by Liverpool team-mate Harry Wilson, Wales' youngest ever worldwide player.
