Being tipped as favorite on their last 16 battle against Northern Ireland doesn’t make Wales getting ahead of themselves as their head coach, Chris Coleman wants his side to focus only on their weekend game.
Speaking to the media ahead of the clash, Coleman stated for now their mind is solely on facing Northern Ireland as there are no easy games in Euro 2016.
Despite The Dragons’ quite convincing performances during group stage, Coleman insisted that his side must not think that they can easily overcome their opponent and go into the next stage.
The tactician warned his players that Northern Ireland are strong, well organized and play with plenty spirit, that’s why facing them won’t be an easy task for Gareth Bale and co.
Probable Wales line up against Northern Ireland:
Hennessey(gk); Gunter, Chester, Williams, Davies, Taylor(def); Allen, Ledley; Ramsey, Bale(mid); Robson-Kanu(att)
