Gunter honoured to equal Wales legend Speed's record of 85 caps

Wales v Panama, International Friendly, Cardiff City Stadium, Tonight, 7.45pm

By Phil Blanche

Chris Gunter will captain Wales tonight cherishing the "huge honour" of equalling Gary Speed's 85-cap record for an outfield player.

Gunter will wear the armband with manager Chris Coleman resting skipper Ashley Williams and other senior players for the Cardiff friendly against Panama.

It is a deserved honour for Reading defender Gunter, who has remarkably played 64 consecutive internationals for Wales.

"To be captain is a big thing. It means the world to captain your country," Gunter said. "And to be level with someone of Gary's stature is a huge honour."

The visit of surprise World Cup finalists Panama could mark the end of Coleman's near six-year reign. But Gunter said: "He is the greatest manager in Wales' history. It would make no sense to let Chris Coleman leave."
