Over 11,000 people have visited the Cardiff Fanzone to see Wales finish top of the table in the group stages of the Euros.

Last Thursday, 3,000 dedicated fans turned up to watch Wales play England, despite getting completely drenched.

But Wales supporters made themselves heard in Bute Park on Monday night with deafening goal celebrations after a 3-0 win over Russia.

Cardiff Council have therefore decided that the fanzone will open again on Saturday as Chris Coleman's team go onto the knock out stages.

The family atmosphere has been fantastic so far and we hope as many as possible will join us on Saturday to cheer on our national team.

James Chester says Wales will test anyone at Euro 2016 if they reproduce the form which swept aside Russia.

Wales' 3-0 victory on Monday night saw them leapfrog England to take top spot in Group B and secure a last-16 tie with one of the best third-placed teams in Paris on Saturday evening.

It remains a complicated picture for Wales who will not discover their second-round opponents for another 24 hours, but the camp are in relaxed mood after spending a day with their families in Toulouse following the Russia rout.

Since I've been here and through the qualifying campaign it was always about the next game and not looking too far ahead.

That's put us in good stead so far, so I don't think we'll do any different.

We'll do our homework on the opposition and approach it the same as we would any other game.

– James Chester, Wales defender

Gethin Jenkins and Bradley Davies have been ruled out of Wales' third Test against New Zealand in Dunedin on Saturday.

The two players have flown home with Josh Turnbull after both picking up injuries in the 36-22 second Test defeat against the All Blacks last weekend.

Turnbull suffered his problem in last week's loss to the Chiefs. Loosehead prop Jenkins suffered a calf injury in the warm-up in Wellington but played the majority of the game.

Lock Davies suffered a knee injury after coming on as a second-half replacement for Luke Charteris. Wales name their team for the third Test on Thursday morning.

Wales centre Jamie Roberts is hoping he will complete his return-to-play protocols in time to line-up against New Zealand in Saturday's third Test in Dunedin.

The Harlequins star was hurt in a clash of heads with opposite number Malakai Fekitoa 30 seconds into the second Test defeat in Wellington on Saturday.

Both players were cut, but Roberts managed to play on to the 78th minute while Fekitoa was replaced at the start of the second half. Roberts could earn his 83rd Welsh cap at the weekend,

I had a few stitches. It was a nasty knock but I'm feeling alright. My head has taken quite a few knocks over the past decade.

I got to know Fekitoa quite well 30 seconds into the game and the rest of the game is a bit of a blur. I remember having a clash of heads with Ireland lock Donncha O'Callaghan in Wellington in the World Cup quarter-final in 2011. My head is a weird shape now.

There is a protocol to follow after a head knock and I am doing that this week. Fingers crossed I will be alright for selection."
