Gareth Bale14:57Tom ColemanWelsh lamb bonding session? I didn’t have any lamb yesterday. It was great to have him in and cook for the lads. Hopefully it gives us a better performance, we’d love nothing more. We have to remember we’re at a World Cup. Gareth Bale14:56Tom ColemanHelp guide young lads? We have a responsibility to help everybody. At this current moment we’re not in the greatest of positions but this is football, it’s not easy. The main thing for us all is that we’ve stuck together as a group like we always have done. You saw our reaction when we conceded against Iran, we were all lying on the floor heartbroken. No one can ever question our commitment.
16:35Tom ColemanExplain England v Wales rivalry? We’ll, basically, they’re here and we’re there! (Southgate uses his hands to illustrate a map! )It’s like any two countries whose borders are together. It’s a great sporting rivalry, there’s no more than that. That feeling might not be mutual but I can understand that as well. I live in Yorkshire and they feel the same about the rest of England. It’s going to be a fantastic atmosphere in the stadium and we’re really looking forward to the game.
We know the quality of the Ukraine team they beat to get to these finals. They seem to have additional motivation to play England from what they’re saying. We’ve got to be prepared for all of those things. But we’ve got to focus on our own performance and that’s the key. Gareth Southgate16:28Tom ColemanMessage to fans following reaction to USA draw? I’m not really sure what the thing in the stadium was. When we went to our fans I thought they were really good after the game. It’s going to be a cracking atmosphere. Our fans will be with us for sure, there’s no question about that.
It’s football, it’s difficult to always play well. The one thing I always do is give 100%. I was flying into tackles in the 90th minute the other day. I’ll just try and lead by example. Gareth Bale14:57Tom ColemanKane boost if he misses out? Harry’s a very good player, he’s a world class player. He’s shown it time and time again. They have so many good players who can come in and take his place. It’s going to be a difficult game, no matter who we face.
We’ve got a chance to win the group with a positive result. There's a lot for both teams resting on the game. Our performance is the key. We’ve played well with the ball in the first game and scored a lot of goals. The second game was tougher. We now want to put both elements together. Gareth Southgate16:19Tom ColemanEngland upWe're about to hear from England boss Gareth Southgate, as well as midfielder Jordan Henderson. 15:56Tom ColemanEngland up shortlyWe'll be hearing from England boss Gareth Southgate very shortly. Stick around. 15:55Tom ColemanGareth Bale's definitive answer on Wales future as Rob Page offers hint on team to face EnglandGareth Bale says Wales' must-win World Cup clash against England will not be his final outing for his country.
The 33-year-old became the most-capped men's Welsh international of all-time last time out, although the landmark was soured as Rob Page's men were beaten 2-0 by Iran. Defeat left the Red Dragons needing victory against the Three Lions on Tuesday night to stand any chance of reaching the knockout stages of the Qatar tournament. But when asked if the clash with England could be his last in the red jersey of Wales, Bale simply responded: "Nope. "The captain is now aiming to inspire what would go down as arguably the greatest achievement in Welsh football history as Wales go in search of victory against their local neighbours while hoping that the result of Iran's clash with the USA goes in their favour.

I do the same as I always do.
We’re top of the group at the moment but as I said earlier there’s still a bit to do. Gareth Southgate 16:25Tom ColemanEngland favourites? We’re used to it. In terms of rankings that’s the case and you have to accept that responsibility. We’re used to going into matches with that feeling. Gareth Southgate16:25Tom ColemanFans need to know it’s tournament not match by match? That’s what tournament football gives you. Fans expect big things from us for what we’ve done over the last few years, it’s how you deal with it. You're going to have different challenges. Hopefully we can deal with them in the right way.
We’ll stick together through thick and thin. Gareth Bale14:55Tom ColemanEngland have weaknesses? Yeah for sure. Everyone has weaknesses. We’ve done our homework. And I'm sure they’ve done the same with us. They’re’ one of the favourites to win the tournament. Gareth Bale14:53Tom ColemanLast international game for you? NopeGareth Bale14:53Tom ColemanGung ho?

For Sadio it’s a huge disappointment for him. I spoke to him. I know what Sadio is like as a person. If there was a small chance he would have given it a go. I hope he recovers well and hopefully he gets another opportunity in the future. Jordan Henderson16:20Tom ColemanHow do you approach game that isn't must win? We want to win football matches. We’ve got to balance freshness with stability. That’s always the decision you're making when you pick the team.
