EURO2016: Skipper Williams confident Wales players will shrug off late defeat to England

Wales captain Ashley Williams has no doubts his team will recover quickly from a 2-1 defeat to England, having gone in at the break ahead then conceding the winning goal deep into stoppage time.

"It is tough for everybody obviously but we have another game on Monday and it is a quick turnaround so we won't get down about it. It hurts obviously, we were close to getting a point but we didn't but we will get over it.

"You haven't done enough until the final whistle blows. We've seen late goals in this tournament, it wasn't that we switched off; it was just one of those things.

"It will be fine. A few of us have spoken, the manager has spoken, we will regroup and get over it. At the end of the day we have three points from two games and we will focus on the next game and getting out of the group."
