Wales boss Rob Page said: “We knew we could create chances with the team we selected, and it was all about executing it. I was really pleased with the performance. When we had the opportunities today we were clinical. I thought to a man we were magnificent.” he added. “We’re in a good position in the table now. We’ve given ourselves a great chance. We want to finish off in style, we don’t want to limp across the line. We want to go toe to toe with the best teams in the world and give it a go.”
“It was always the plan to play 45. I’ve been out for two months – we always said if we were up in the game I’d come off and try and get ready for Tuesday. I’ll see how I feel the next few days and we’ll decide from there. No injury, that was the plan.” Gareth Bale said.
