Swansea skipper Williams planning to keep emotions under control for Wales

Swansea skipper Ashley Williams plans on keeping his emotions in check while representing Wales in the upcoming Euro2016 tournament.

The 31-year-old England-born defender will lead Wales in their first major tournament since the 1958 World Cup, which will see the Dragons come up against England in Group B.

"I've thought about it but, to be honest, I try not to get too caught up in any of that," he said.

"It is going to happen but that is why we are the professionals, we have to get the job done.

"There is no point being too emotional either way because then you can't perform to your best.

"I think the whole Euros will be something you can't really enjoy as players until after the occasion, because we have a job to do.

"It's probably when you look back you will think that is brilliant, however it goes."
