Chris Coleman describes Wales team as 'underdogs' of Euro 2016

Chris Coleman has described the Wales team as the "underdogs" of Euro 2016.

But the Wales Manager was quick to add that the team deserve to be in the competition despite their defeat against Sweden last Sunday where they lost 3-0.

He says he's reminded the team of their ability and skills before their next game to Slovakia over the weekend.

Bale: Wales now looking ahead to Cyprus

Gareth Bale paid tribute to last night's fans for turning out in Cardiff and showing their support following Wales' 0-0 draw against Bosnia.

The Real Madrid star added the team are now looking forward to Monday night's game against Cyprus.

Wales manager Chris Coleman also spoke to ITV News and praised his side for their performance last night.

After a tame first half Bosnia started the second half brightly - Hennessey keeping the home side in it with a string of fine saves.

Wales grew into the match though and had good chances to win the game themselves - Ashley Williams missing a header from close range and Bale forcing a fantastic stop from Begovic at the death.

Bosnia's best chance came late on, with Man City's Edin Dzeko edging a header into the arms of Wales 'keeper Wayne Hennessey. The Bosnians also had a late penalty shout ignored.

It's been a game of few chances so far for the home side, right back Chris Gunter having the best opportunity - firing over after good build up play involving Gareth Bale.

Wales are in Euro Qualifying action as they take on Bosnia at the Cardiff City Stadium this evening, and manager Chris Coleman will be hoping for a positive result despite another withdrawal from his already injury-ravaged squad.

Emyr Hughes' ankle injury suffered in training on Wednesday brings the number of players Chris Coleman will be without up to ten.

"We lost him to an innocuous challenge in a small-sided game...We're going to have to send him back to Wigan. He's gone off for a scan as he's got a bad swelling around his ankle. It's disappointing but we'll have to get on with it."

– Chris Coleman, Wales Manager

Coleman already lost influential midfielders Aaron Ramey and Joe Allen before even naming the squad, and will be hoping Real Madrid star Gareth Bale will deliver in their absence.
