Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen refuses to give up on Wales' World Cup hopes.

Following Tuesday's 2-0 loss in Croatia - the Dragons' third defeat from the opening four fixtures of their qualifying campaign - the picture in Group A is not looking promising for Chris Coleman's men.

"We knew after losing the first two games it was always going to be tough and we had a lot of catching up to do," Allen said.

"There's no hiding from that but, while there's still a chance, we'll keep fighting and we go into the next games looking to pick up points."
