Page so proud

"It's unbelievable how proud I was to be captain," Page told the Western

"When I looked up at my family during the national anthem, I almost lost it.
I'll never forget it. The highlights of the game will stay with me forever.
I've kept my captain's armband and I'll frame that along with the shirt."

Page could have been playing for City reserves on Wednesday afternoon.
Injuries and withdrawls from John Toshacks first squad meant not only a
squad place but a start and the captains armband for Page, the most capped
Welsh international on City's books at the moment.

The only bit of bad news from the game for Page was a knee injury that could see him out for a few weeks.

City boss Lennie Lawrence approved of Toshack's decision to name Page

"It was also clever to make Rob captain. He's the type of player who
deserves to be captain and I was very pleased for him that he captained
Wales against Hungary. To lead your country is very special.

"Rob is a good leader and character. He took great pride in being made
captain. That was a smart move by John Toshack."
