Wales manager Chris Coleman has had a poor start to the trip to Macedonia on Thursday.
The former Fulham boss missed the flight to Skopje after losing his passport overnight meaning he was absent from the Dragons’ final training session before Friday night’s World Cup qualifying clash with Macedonia.
Coleman was also forced to miss the final press conference with assistant Kit Symons taking charge.
"There were a couple of passport issues which needed to be resolved and they have been and he will be landing imminently,” said Symons.
"It was a minor issue which has been dealt with, it is sorted so there are no dramas.
"He will not make training but all the tactical stuff has been done during the week and it's just about the boys stretching their legs tonight, so it will not be a disruption.
"I have not spoken to him since this morning, I am sure he will bat it off and get on with it and not be embarrassed.
"It is not going to affect the set-up for the game in any way, shape or form.
"It is unfortunate and we do not want it happening again. But it is not the end of the world and it will be no excuse if we do not perform."
