“You feel the whole country are with us”


Chris Gunter

“You feel the whole country are with us, and that is why it is precious to us as players to keep that going.

“As long as the team are trying and doing their best I think it will always be there. While the fans can see what they give us, how much it helps us, it’s important we keep that together because we’re effectively a really small country.

“You saw how much of a force we were at the tournament. It’s something other countries would love to have, and we know people are probably looking at us and wondering how we’re doing it, if they can replicate it.

“It’s something we worked hard to make sure happened and it’s important we keep it.

“The hunger to succeed has only grown. Speaking to the boys, it was some of the best weeks we’ve ever had in our lives, so it’s only natural you want it more and we’ll give absolutely everything to replicate what we’ve had in the last two years because it’s a massively special time for this country and us as players as well.”
