Simon Davies says it's time for a resurgent Wales to deliver after a string of positive results in friendly matches.
Wales have impressed against the likes of Germany, Argentina, the Czech Republic and Croatia last month, when Simon's magnficent goal secured a point.
Those performances under Mark Hughes suggest that Wales might, at last, throw off the unwanted record of not having qualified for a major competition since Spurs legend Cliff Jones helped them to the World Cup in 1958.
It all starts with their first qualifying game for Euro 2004 against Finland on Saturday. It's a tough group with Italy and Yugoslavia also involved, so a good start appears vital.
"It's a massive game for us," admitted Simon. "We're taking a lot of fans out there and they will expect a performance from us.
"We've been promising for a number of games and now it's time to produce it when it really matters.
"Friendlies are friendlies and although they are great results to have, they don't really count for anything.
"The big game is Finland. The talking has to stop and we've got to go out and produce it.
"The lads are playing well. We've had a bit of luck as well, which helps, but we need to go out there, be professional, get a good away result and then come back for a massive one against Italy."
