Swansea No2 Pascoe urges snubbed England hopefuls to stay strong

Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer knows he and his teammates must get over their England snub.

Scott Sinclair, Danny Graham and Leon Britton have also taken the top flight by storm, but saw their slim Euro 2012 hopes hit..

Now Swansea assistant manager and former Wales ­midfielder Colin ­Pascoe has urged the quartet to unleash their frustration at The Britannia Stadium. Pascoe said: "We were all gutted for the lads..

"When you look at what they've achieved this ­season, they could not have done much more..

"But they should use this disappointment as a huge motivation. What better way to prove the ­manager made a mistake than with a good performance days later..

"They should also take it as a ­compliment that people are even talking about them for an international call. It shows how far we have come as a club in a short space of time that we are disappointed for these guys."
