10 Wales Football Legends

Idea here was to focus on 10 Welsh football legends, being as they’re currently the top British football nation. Went back to the 1958 World Cup for the first two players, ‘Golden Boy’ Ivor Allchurch & ‘Gentle Giant’ John Charles

next comes 1970’s Liverpool striker (and later Wales manager 2004-2010) John Toshack, fantastic Everton keeper Neville Southall, and Wales top goalscorer, Liverpool’s Ian Rush

then we come to ‘Sparky’ Man Utd’s Mark Hughes (also Wales manager 1999-2004), Gary Speed (another Wales manager 2011), and Man Utd’s Ryan Giggs

These all began as pencil drawings before being arranged together and colour added

Although from different eras, kitted out all the players in classic 1958 Wales jerseys to unify the group
