Gareth Bale has been named in the Wales squad for the final two Euro 2016 qualifiers against Bosnia and Herzegovina and Andorra.
The Real Madrid attacker has not played since suffering a calf injury in his club’s Champions League victory over Shakhtar Donetsk on September 15.
If he comes through that he will be in the side to face Bosnia in Zenica on October. 10.
Wales now sit one place behind five time World Cup Winners Brazil and two behind Spain, thanks largely to Bale, who has been unstoppable in the Welsh red, scoring six goals in eight matches.
“If he’s fit to meet up with us I will look to play him in Bosnia”, Coleman told a press conference on Thursday as he announced his squad.
Coleman is still sweating on Bale’s fitness.
“It’s a great position to be in and I’ve said all along that with every game that passes and every time we win the pressure becomes bigger”.
“We’ve got to keep our eye on the job in hand”, Coleman said.
