Wales will play host to Turkey in a must-win Euro 2024 Qualifier at the Cardiff City Stadium on Tuesday.
After a managerial career in the lower leagues and the Wales backroom team, Page suddenly found himself at the helm of the national side after Ryan Giggs stood down from the role after assault charges were brought against him.
Rob Page's playing career
He captained the Hornets to the second division title in the 1997/98 season and their 1999 play-off final victory.
In what was Watford's first Premier League season, Page earnt plaudits for his performance, picking up the award of Watford's player of the season. However, he could not prevent the club's relegation from the top flight.
Page as an international
Page played at Under-18 and Under-21 level for Wales and finally made his international debut in 1996 during a 0-0 draw with Turkey in a World Cup qualifier.
In the span of his international career, he earned 41 caps for Wales but never managed to score for the side.
Page's managerial career
Northampton swooped for his services that May, but he only lasted in the role until January 2017 after the team dropped to 16th in the League One table and were dumped out the FA Cup by non-league Stourbridge.
Page as Wales manager
Initially, Page was given the role of Wales U-21 manager. His responsibilities were extended making him in charge of the U-19 and U-17 side. He impressed the hierarchy at the Welsh federation and succeeded Osian Roberts to become Ryan Giggs' assistant for the Welsh men's team.
But his biggest achievement came in June 2022 when Wales secured a Ukraine 1-0 qualifier play-off victory over Ukraine in June 2022 to earned a place in their first World Cup since 1958.
