Chris Coleman, the Wales national team manager was gutted as his team threw away a first half lead to lose 1 – 2 to England in the two sides Group B clash in the Euro 2016 Championships on Thursday 16 June.
England’s second half subs Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge scored the goals that canceled out Gareth Bale’s opener and in his post match reactions, Coleman lauds the subs for their impact.
He admitted England had the most possession and pushed his side hard after going a goal down he is however keeping the faith and hopes to finish the job when his side takes on Russia in the last group match.
“Congratulations to Roy. He made some good substitutions and we knew they would push us back.
“Most of the time we looked quite strong and, although they had a lot of possession, I wasn’t that worried.
“But when you are bringing on the likes of Vardy and Sturridge and Sterling and Kane going off…They are top players.
“The guys showed great heart. They stuck into the game and, with 60 seconds remaining to give up that point we worked so hard for, we are gutted.
“We are here to get through to the last 16. We move on and have to show a reaction against Russia. If we get a result we are still in the tournament and have all to play for.” He said.
